In addition, the program also offers low-interest equity loans for home improvement projects.

The Heritage Home Program is available to owners of Cuyahoga Heights homes that are 50 years and older.

Qualified homeowners also have the option of obtaining a low-interest, fixed-rate Heritage Home Program loan. There are no maximum income restrictions.  The owner just needs to have good credit and sufficient equity in the home to support the loan.  There are no points involved with the Heritage Home Program loan and the interest is tax deductible!  Eligible Projects include:

  • Compatible additions
  • Roof repair and replacement
  • Basement waterproofing
