The City of Fort Wayne’s Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services is currently offering a Homeowner Repair Loan program to City residents.

The Furnace and Roof Replacement Program provides 0% interest seven-year loans for furnace or roof replacement. Following are a few of the criteria needed to qualify for the program:

• Applicants must own their home and it must be their primary residence.
• The home must be located within the City limits.
• Homes being purchased on land contract are not eligible for this program.
• Applicants must have a household income at or below 80% of the Area Median Income. (Please call to have a staff member help you calculate this.)
• Applicants must have homeowner’s insurance.
• Applicant must be up-to-date on mortgage payments.
• Applicants must not be involved in a pending bankruptcy or have liens placed against their home.

Residents may call 260-427-8585 to leave their information on a voice mail system. Someone from the Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services will then call them back to determine their eligibility. As always, funding is limited for this program, so qualified homeowners are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
