Dear Resident,

The City of Lyndhurst is continuing participation in the Heritage Home Program SM (HHP) of the Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS). This program provides owners of homes that are over 50 years old access to guidance and low-cost financing for home improvement and maintenance projects. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of this wonderful program that is available to you.

The Heritage Home Program provides free Technical Assistance for home repair and maintenance projects. The Technical Assistance and advice offered by the Heritage Home Program SM is free, impartial and independent. CRS does not have any products or services that it sells to homeowners and does not charge homeowners for advice.

Technical Assistance includes:

➜ Site Visits to your home to assess projects and provide feedback, virtually or in person

➜ Advice on repair, remodeling, and maintenance as well as compatible home additions

➜ Assistance finding contractors and free expert evaluation of contractor estimates

➜ Impartial product and service reviews

➜ Color consultations for exterior painting

The Heritage Home Program SM also offers access to low-interest home equity loans for home improvement projects. At fixed-rates as low as 2%, these loans are made by local banks to homeowners for interior and exterior improvements. Homeowners should contact the Heritage Home Programsm to learn more.

You can attend virtual ZOOM HHP Information Sessions put on by the HHP staff using your phone or computer device on any of the dates posted here. All presentations will be broadcast at 6:00 p.m. on the specified date. To register for any presentation or to sign up for email announcements of all HHP presentations, visit the HHP website https://www.heritagehomeprogram.org/ or call the number specified below.
