Somerville Repairs Program

Would you like to make improvements to your home, but lack the funds necessary to make those improvements? Do you need any home modifications to assist your comfort and safety in your home? If so, the City of Somerville can help. The City of Somerville offers a zero percent interest, deferred payment loan to bring your property up to current code requirements. The Housing Rehab Program can provide the funds you need through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The goal of the program is to provide safe, healthy, and accessible housing to income eligible clients.


The City also offers a Heating System Replacement Program, which offers up to $4,500 of forgivable funding for the replacement of old and inefficient boilers/furnaces. Income eligibility restrictions do apply for both programs.
