MARIETTA, GA -- The City of Marietta's Housing and Community Development Division is now offering a loan program to help low- and moderate-income families repair their homes.
To qualify for assistance, a family must own a home and have paid off enough of the loan or mortgage to secure the cost of the work.
Eligible families must also have received no previous assistance and should be below 80 percent of median income, or less than $40,250 for one person.
The loans provided by the City of Marietta can be used toward electrical, heating, plumbing, roofing and other repair needs. They are given at zero percent interest and don't need to be repaid until the home is sold.
Funds are limited; interested families are encouraged to call 770-794-5610 as soon as possible to see if they qualify.
