Qualified residents of Eastham, Truro and Provincetown can receive deferred, 15-year fully forgivable loans of up to $40,000 per household to pay for critical home repairs through the CDP’s Housing Rehabilitation Program. The program is designed to preserve existing homes for year-round residents at or below 80 percent of the median area income.
Repairs can include, but are not limited to, roofing and siding, electrical, heating and plumbing work, lead paint abatement, and energy efficiency upgrades to keep properties in good condition for the long term. Last year the CDP’s housing rehab program helped to preserve 22 houses in Provincetown, Truro, Eastham and Harwich, including eight homes for families with children and fourteen for seniors. The renovation projects were completed by local contractors and circulated over $700,000 into the local economy.
