The Home Modification Loan Program (Massachusetts)
Currently, the loan amount is up to $50,000. Most loans require no monthly payments and no interest. Repay the loan when you sell the house.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts sponsors the Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP), which provides low and no-interest loans to homeowners. The modifications can be for themselves, resident family members, and tenants with disabilities. Modifications must allow the beneficiary accessible improvements.
The program has helped countless people remain safe and independent in their homes. We have extensive experience filing the necessary paperwork and dealing with the staff administering the Home Modification Loan Program. For information about the loan program, visit the links below. Contact us at 617.923.4545 to find out what modifications we can do for you.
For more details, call the state HMLP Office at 617- 425-6637.
