Conversion Grant Program

This program grants an owner up to $10,000 to restore a multifamily property to its original single-family use. This program also encourages home ownership by offering an extra $5,000 deferred payment loan to those individuals that are owner occupants. A grant of 25% of the conversion and rehabilitation cost, up to $10,000, is available for qualifying projects.

This program aims to reduce density and to restore homes to their original design intent.
