Housing Rehabilitation Program

The City’s Housing Rehabilitation Program provides loans for basic home repairs to qualified low-income homeowners within the city limits. The 2% simple interest loans are for up to $35,000, with no payments required until the house is sold. Qualifying households earn 80% or less of Vancouver’s Area Median Income (AMI). View the current income limits to see if your household qualifies.

The goal of this program is to preserve the existing 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.
