Eligible homeowners will be provided a zero-percent interest loan to cover the cost of repairs, while the loan payment will be tailored to ensure affordability.

Homeowners will be provided a zero-percent interest loan to cover the cost of the repairs. The loan payment will be tailored to ensure affordability for the homeowner.
