Accepted Applications from Appleton Residents for Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program

March 12, 2021

The City of Appleton’s Community and Economic Development Department operates a deferred repayment loan program for low-to-moderate income homeowners (eg, a family of four with an income of less than $69,100/year) requiring home improvements. If you own a low-to-middle income single-family home or own a duplex, you may qualify. The program is restricted to residents of the City of Appleton. Applications from eligible households are currently being accepted through April 30, 2021.

The City of Appleton recognizes that maintaining the existing housing stock is important to the overall well-being of the community. A stable economic base, sound codes, ordinances and enforcement procedures, working with responsible landlords, have all contributed to the high quality residential neighborhoods found in Appleton.

PROGRAM BENEFITS

The program offers the ability to protect the investment you have in your home by providing interest-free rehabilitation loan funds with no monthly payments. The loan amount is pledged to your property and registered in the deeds registry. It must be repaid in full (without interest) when you sell, transfer, rent or leave the house. Rehabilitating your property increases its value and extends the life of the home.
