We partner with Cuyahoga County,Lucas 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. KeyBank is our participating bank.

In 1992, the Cleveland Restoration Society launched a housing rehabilitation program in two City of Cleveland neighborhoods - one east, one west.

In 2001, the program expanded into other areas in the region as the Heritage Home Program.

Over 25 years after the Program's inception, we have provided 14,000 homeowners with helpful technical advice on over $293 million in projects. Additionally, our program has facilitated over 1,570 low interest loans on projects totaling over $62 million in neighborhood reinvestment.
