County offers repair loans

Qualified homeowners in Kinsman and the northern portion of Vernon are the focus of Trumbull County’s Community Housing Improvement Program.

Low-and-moderate-income homeowners in these areas can apply for deferred, zero percent interest loans to fix substandard conditions in their homes to make them safe, healthy, durable, energy efficient and affordable.

Also, grants for home repairs are available. Repair or replacement of a furnace and / or ductwork, roofing gutters and downspouts, hot water tanks, electrical service and connection and porches are some of the typical repairs done.

For more information or to get an application, call the Trumbull County Planning Commission at 330-675-2480. Applications will be accepted until Jan. 31. Funding will be made available after Jan. 31 based on greatest need until the money is gone.
