Home Improvement Programs

NPHS partners with Cities and local municipalities to assist eligible homeowners to preserve, repair and improve their homes. NPHS administers several home repair programs for various municipalities in the Inland Empire including grants for seniors and permanently disabled homeowners. NPHS also provides its own Home Improvement Loan Program to cover the cost of home repairs and improvements.

City of Riverside
Housing Rehabilitation Program

The City of Riverside’s Housing Rehabilitation Program helps low income households rehabilitate their homes. Low interest loans and a limited number of grants are available to help finance housing repairs for income eligible homeowners living in the City of Riverside.

Rehabilitation Loans

These loans provide up to $60,000 for rehabilitation. These loans are interest-free and payment is deferred for 30 years for qualified homeowners. A Deed of Trust is used to secure the loan (as a lien on the property). Deferred loans become due and payable upon the resale, transfer of title, refinancing of the property with cash out, or death of borrower, whichever comes first.

These programs may be available to you if you live in the City of Riverside, have owned and lived in your home for at least a year, and your household income is less than 80% of the County’s Median Income.
