The Landmark Society of Western New York and NeighborWorks® Rochester are partnering to help homeowners in City of Rochester Preservation Districts make exterior and interior home improvements by offering construction management services and loans to those who qualify.
The Landmark Society will provide preservation oriented construction management services that include: developing a work plan and rehab specifications, assisting the property owner through the Preservation District Certificate of Appropriateness process, identifying a contractor, as well as support monitoring the construction phase.
The loans are being offered through NeighborWorks® Rochester. There are no income requirements that homeowners would need to meet to be considered for a Preservation Rehab Loan. NeighborWorks® Rochester will also help interested homeowners apply for a free energy audit through NYSERDA’s Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY) program. GJGNY energy audits are free to households making less than $137,000.
There are no income restrictions to be eligible for this home improvement loan program.
Your property must:
- Be located in a City of Rochester Preservation District. Contact The Landmark Society or visit the City of Rochester website to determine if your property is located in a Preservation District.
- Be owner occupied.
- Contain a maximum of four residential units.
