WHAT WE DO
The Heritage Home Program℠ assists the owners of older homes in maintaining and improving their properties.
Our team of highly trained professionals knows what makes older houses tick. We can help determine what improvements will increase the value of your home and preserve the architectural features you fell in love with in the first place. We know what materials to use for optimal results and where to find them.
The Heritage Home Program is a division of the Cleveland Restoration Society, the largest non-governmental regional historic preservation organization in Ohio. The Cleveland Restoration Society aims to reclaim the vitality, prosperity, and beautify of northeast Ohio through the preservation of its remarkable architecture, and the Heritage Home Program was specially developed to assist homeowners in that mission.
Historic preservation results in:
- Positive reinvestment
- An increase in property values
- Investor confidence
- Neighborhood stability
Caring for your home and its history makes others care about it too. When you put the time into maintaining your old home or restoring its architectural features, it affects the whole neighborhood.
WHAT DOES THE HERITAGE HOME PROGRAM DO?
The HHP is divided into two categories of services:
You do not have to use one to use the other, but you may take advantage of all our services if your home qualifies.
DOES MY HOME QUALIFY?
If your home is 50 years old or older and is located in a participating city, you can receive technical assistance and may qualify for a low-interest rehabilitation loan. The loan can be used for numerous interior and exterior projects that make your home more comfortable while preserving architectural character.
To find out if your home is located in a participating city, follow the link below.
