You may have received, or if not, will shortly be receiving a postcard from our Partners with the Heritage Home Program (HHP).  

Several years ago, we became part of this valuable program in partnership with the Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS) that offers Beachwood residents with homes 50 years and older free technical assistance for home repair and maintenance projects.

Since its inception, this program has provided millions of dollars of free services to Beachwood residents. Last quarter alone (July through September 2016), HHP responded to 18 inquiries in Beachwood and offered more than $700,000 worth of complementary technical assistance.

HHP and CRS provide services including site visits to answer home repair, improvement and maintenance questions, advice on energy efficiency, access to information on local contractors, evaluation of bids and much more.

Qualified homeowners also have the option of obtaining a low-interest fixed-rate HHP loan with rates as low as 1.85% for up to 10 years. Eligible projects may include exterior and interior painting, kitchen and bath improvements, compatible additions and many others.

If you have a home that’s 50 years or older, you may qualify for this free resource. Consider taking advantage of it.  

If for some reason you did not receive a postcard and would like to learn more about the HHP program, please visit the website –  www.heritagehomeproject.org – or call 216.426.3116.
