Get help with our home repair programs

We have several programs to help you afford home repairs. Learn about how we can help.

SENIOR HOME REPAIR

If you are 62 or older, you may be able to get a 0 percent, interest-deferred loan for repairs. Loans can be used for minor, moderate, and emergency repairs.

HOMEWORKS HELP

The program offers interest-free loans for interior and exterior repairs. We have loans as much as:

  • $10,000 for condominiums in a condominium association of up to six units, and
  • $20,000 for one- to four-family homes.
3D HELP

Our 3D program offers up to $30,000 to homeowners with triple-decker properties. Loans are for repairs and home energy updates.

SENIORS SAVE

If you are 60 or older, we can help you replace an aging heating system before it turns into an emergency situation. 

LEAD SAFE BOSTON

Lead paint can be poisonous to children, and may cause learning issues. The City helps eligible homeowners, landlords, and tenants get financial help to remove lead-based paint.

HOME REPAIR PROGRAM WORKSHOP

We host workshops for eligible homeowners. The workshops offers 0 percent  interest, deferred loans for home repairs. You're eligible if you own and live in your one- to four-family home or condo in Boston.

You can register online. You should get a confirmation email after you sign up. If you don't get an email, or if you have other questions, call us at 617-635-4663.
