We partner with Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, and the Treasurer of State of Ohio to "buy down" the interest rate in order to make home rehab more affordable. We partner with KeyBank and First Federal of Lakewood, our two Participating Banks.

In 1992, the Cleveland Restoration Society launched our housing rehabilitation program in the City of Cleveland.

In 2001, we began expanding into other areas in the region.

Over 20 years after the Program's inception, we have provided 7,000 homeowners with helpful technical advice on over $154 million in projects. Additionally, our program has facilitated over 1,200 low interest loans on projects totaling over $45 million in neighborhood reinvestment.


Additional support is provided in part by:

Cleveland Foundation

Cuyahoga Arts & Culture

National Trust for Historic Preservation

Ohio Arts Council

Our Participating Communities
