Affordable Home Renovations with Habitat for Humanity
Renew AC is a new program designed to help low-income households afford home improvement and repair in Alameda County.
Renew Alameda County (Renew AC) helps residents make home improvements that are necessary to stay, grow, and thrive in their homes. Renew AC empowers low-income homeowners like seniors and those with disabilities to access affordable, low-interest deferred payment loans for home improvement projects that maintain safe housing, increase accessibility, and ultimately prevent homeowner displacement. Renew AC provides 1% interest loans from $15,000 to $150,000 to qualified homeowners. Simple interest is accrued annually, with total interest never to exceed 50% of amount borrowed, and payments are deferred until the home is sold
Renew AC is administered by Alameda County with funding provided by Alameda County taxpayers who approved the Measure A1 Housing Bond in November 2016. The program is operated by Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. All Renew AC inquiries will be handled directly by Habitat staff. The program is operated by Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley.
