Home Improvement Loan Programs

The Waite Park Community Council in conjunction with the Greater Minneapolis Housing Resource Center have started two new loan programs for Waite Park residents, an Emergency Loan Program and a low-interest Home Improvement Loan Program.

Emergency Repair Loan
The Emergency Repair Loan program is an ongoing program designed to help Waite Park residents get quick access to funds for immediate, emergency home repairs. The Waite Park Community Council Emergency Repair Loan Program is designed to provide financial assistance to homeowners who are in financial hardship circumstances and are unable to receive financing from other sources. This no-interest program allows residents to access up to $7,500 quickly for major home improvements.

Waite Park Revolving Loan
The Waite Park Revolving Loan program allows residents to access up to $15,000 at a low 4% interest rate for general home improvements. Demand for this program is high, so applications for this program are being taken
on a first come, first served basis at the Housing Resource Center (a department of the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation).

More information on these two loan program and others can be found at gmhchousing.org or by calling 612-588-3033.
