Eligible neighborhoods are listed here. The borrower must be the owner-occupant of the home. Current residents may borrow between $5,000 and $20,000, and the loan must be used for home renovation only, including some visible exterior improvements. The interest rate is always 1% below the prime rate but in no event less than 4%. The term is 10 years.
