This program will cover Home Repair small and large.  This training will provide information on loan and grant applications assistance.  Our speaker will discuss 502 and 504 Home Loan programs.  The 504 loan program allows low to moderate income families to purchase homes in rural areas at a discounted interest rate; whereas the 502 program allows low income seniors to receive low interest, long term repair loans as well as grant dollars for repairs based on eligibility.

Each program builds on the other and are often combined to achieve the maximum benefit for each family.
