Residential Facade Improvement Program

Program Goal and Description

The Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation will be introducing a Residential Façade Improvement Program to assist home owners in making essential repairs to their homes. The pilot program will focus on eligible properties in the 45206 zipcode. The program will offer a five-year forgivable loan of up to $25,000 to make repairs such as: storm shutters, exterior painting, roof repair, masonry, windows, doors, awnings, lighting, eaves, gutters, etc. The program will focus attention toward lower-income households and foster equity to benefit long-term home and property owners. A program and design committee will be created to evaluate applicants and award projects whose design will have a positive impact on the Walnut Hills community.

This is simply a letter of interest.
