The Hope-4-Homes program provides low- and moderate-income Beaverton homeowners with low- to no-interest loans of up to $20,000 to rehabilitate their homes. Staff from Unlimited Choices
will help you determine what work needs to be done, write up your project, and secure bids from at least three qualified contractors. You get to choose who will work on your home.
Once the project is finished, staff will make sure you are satisfied with the quality of the work and will handle making payments to the contractors. You will then begin repaying the loan based on the terms of the loan agreement (in some cases, payment will be deferred). All loans, regardless of the repayment schedule, are due in the event that you sell, move away from, or refinance your home.
