Low-interest home improvement loans are currently available to eligible low/moderate income homeowners through the Allegheny Home Improvement Loan Program (AHILP). AHILP is a government-funded loan program sponsored by the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County and administered by Allegheny County Economic Development. AHILP, formerly known as the Improvement Program of Allegheny County (IMPAC), has been providing low-interest home improvement loans to eligible AlleghenyCounty homeowners for more than 20 years.
Emergency/Priority Improvement Loans for up to $10,000 at 0% APR are available for a singular emergency/priority home improvement such as a roof, a furnace/boiler or repairing a broken gas, water or sewage line. This loan may also be used to undertake wholly accessibility-related improvements such as ramps or bathroom modifications. There is not a processing fee associated with an Emergency/Priority Loan, but your requested improvement must be qualified as being an "emergency" or "priority" improvement by AHILP in order for you to be offered this no-interest loan.
