Home Maintenance Loan Program

Well-maintained homes across the entire community increase the appeal of South Orange and Maplewood NJ as great places to live for current and future residents of all races.  The South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race has developed a Home Maintenance Loan program that offers financial assistance to local homeowners in neighborhoods with the greatest need, based on South Orange/Maplewood Code Enforcement Department data. Qualifying home owners can borrow up to $5000 to complete external home repairs.  For more detailed information on this low interest, unsecured loan, please read the Home Maintenance Loan Brochure. This loan program is made possible through the support of Investors Bank.
