WMCA’s Home Repair Loan Program are secured loans that help income eligible applicants with the cost of repairing and making improvements to their home, at an interest rate of up to 6%. The minimum loan amount is $2,000. A $50 fee is required for a credit report, as well as an origination fee from $300 to $500. Both of these fees can be rolled into the loan, meaning they do not have to be paid up front.

The steps to receiving/qualifying for a Home Repair Loan are as follows:

  • Borrower must complete a loan application (Information to include:Proof of income & Proof of ownership of property to be improved-copy of deed and tax bill)
  • Borrower submits information to the loan officer
  • Loan officer will then check eligibility of the borrower

If the borrower is deemed eligible then:

  • Borrower will receive an estimate from a contractor on work to be completed. All work must be done by a contractor.
  • Owner closes the loan
  • Contract is signed (between the owner and the contractor)
  • Work begins
  • Work is completed
  • Borrower begins making monthly payments

Applications are available at the WMCA Office located on Church Street in East Wilton.
