Ellington Housing Rehabilitation Program

This program is administered by Community Opportunities Group, Inc.

DOES YOUR HOME NEED REPAIR?

If you own and live in a single or multi-family residential property in Ellington that is occupied by low- or moderate-income households, you may be eligible for financial assistance to make repairs to your property.

The Town manages the Ellington Regional Housing Rehabilitation Program, which offers financial and technical assistance to property owners in Ellington, Somers, or Suffield. The Program’s purposes are to correct building code deficiencies, improve energy efficiency and improve housing conditions.

The types of work that the Program assists with include electrical and plumbing upgrades, heating systems, insulation and energy conservation improvements, roofing, window replacement, septic system repair, asbestos and lead-paint abatement, and accessibility modifications.

Funding assistance is provided in the form of a 0% interest “deferred payment loan (DPL).”  The DPL is only repaid when the property is sold.  If the property is transferred to an heir, the loan does not need to be repaid but it remains in effect until a sale at a future date. Program assistance is provided at the following levels:

►100% DPLs are available to eligible low-income* owner occupants of single or multi-family properties.

►75% DPLs are available to moderate-income* owner occupants of single or multi-family properties. The owner provides the 25% balance.

If you have any questions, need more information about the Program or want an application, call or drop by the Community Development Office. The Town of Ellington is committed to promoting open access to its housing programs to all persons.
