City of Medford Oregon / Neighborhood Resources / Housing / Home Repair Loan Program

Home Repair Loan Program

Overview

The City of Medford offers a program for income eligible homeowners for home repairs through the Housing Authority of Jackson County. Funding for the program comes from the City of Medford's Community Block Grant Program.
Before Rehabilitation
Before Rehabilitation

The Housing Authority administers an interest-free deferred loan program for home repairs. Assistance is available for low-income property owners to correct problems that could create a threat to the health and safety of the occupants. This includes leaking roofs, inefficient woodstoves, failed heating systems, unsafe wiring, failed plumbing systems, broken water heaters, broken glass, dangerous lead paint and structural defects such as severe dry rot.  

In addition, the program will weatherize homes to achieve a more energy efficient environment for the homeowner.   Low-income homeowners with disabilities may be eligible for assistance with the removal of architectural barriers, installations of ramps, handrails and grab bars as well as modifications of doorways.
