Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program

The City of Vancouver Housing Rehabilitation Program provides financial assistance through grants and loans of up to $25,000 to qualified low income homeowners (see informational flyer and program guidelines below) to complete basic home repairs. The goal of the program is to preserve the housing supply in Vancouver. Funding for this program comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Programs and the Vancouver Affordable Housing Fund.

Priorities of the rehab program are to address:

  • Structural deficiency
  • Dry Rot
  • Foundation repair
  • Weatherization
  • Internal elements including electrical, mechanical and plumbing deficiency
  • Sustainability, and
  • Cosmetic issues

The program is offered within the city limits of Vancouver. The Clark County Housing Rehabilitation program is available for Clark County residents who live outside the City of Vancouver.

The program is highlighted in the Columbian newspaper article titled, "Low-cost loans help local residents fix homes".
