Home Repair Loans

The Portland Housing Bureau offers a no-interest loan of up to $40,000 to fund repairs, like a leaky roof, or electrical and plumbing issues. To be eligible, households must income-qualify for the program (See Income Guidelines). The program is available for homeowners who live in either the  Interstate Corridor or the  Lents Town Center Urban Renewal Areas (URAs). To see if a specific property is within one of these two URAs, go to the Urban Renewal Area Look Up for directions on how to search for the property on Funding is subject to availability.
