The H.A.R.T. Community Center coordinates and offers many services for all Harrisburg and Southern Linn County residents at either no cost or low cost.
Linn County Home Repair Program:
Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services, a local nonprofit agency servicing Linn County, is offering home repair loans with 0% APR and NO monthly payments to income qualified homeowners. You may qualify for this program if you are a LOW or MODERATE income homeowner; if you live in Linn County excluding the City of Albany; and if you currently have equity in your home.
Loans may be used to repair a home to a safe, healthy, and decent condition; repair or replace items to reduce maintenance and operating costs; or to adapt a home for accessibility. Typical repairs are plumbing, septic and water heaters: heating/cooling equipment; roofing, siding, windows, and doors; well-drilling; interior repairs (flooring, walls, painting); exterior painting; accessibility improvements; and repairs to any item that may affect your health or safety.
