March 15, 2022Spring showers bring…home repairs?  If you’re a Fairfield homeowner and dealing with a leaky roof or if you’re needing to make other repairs to your home, the Town’s Office of Community & Economic Development may be able to help.  Eligible homeowners can receive up to 60% of the total project cost, up to a maximum of $15,000 per qualified applicant, per year. Financial assistance is provided in the form of a special, no interest loan that is repaid when the owner sells, refinances or transfers the property.

Eligible home improvements include exterior painting, siding or roofing projects; installation of new or replacement storm windows and doors; lead-based paint or asbestos abatement projects; installation of replacement boilers or hot water heaters; heating, plumbing or electrical improvements to address code deficiencies and modifications to accommodate persons with disabilities.

Applicants must be income eligible and a current Town of Fairfield homeowner to participate in this program. Certain other restrictions do apply.
