Fairfield’s CDBG Home Repair Program provides Fairfield homeowners that qualify financial assistant for special no-interest loans to pay for improvements and repair. The maximum of $15,000 is available per qualified applicant, per year. Projects covered include those that improve home condition, prevent or correct physical deterioration, conserve energy, and/or correct code violations. The program does not cover costs for additions or improvements to garages, sheds or outbuildings, or for interior painting/decorating, cosmetic improvements, landscaping or the purchase/installation of anything not considered an integral fixture of the property. These loans, which are recorded as liens on the property, are repaid when the owner sells and/or transfers the property, refinances, or dies. To be eligible for assistance under this program, applicants must meet the HUD income guidelines for a low-income household as provided below.
