The Borough of Conshohocken’s Housing Rehabilitation Program has been in existence for over four decades and continues to operate for low and moderate-income homeowners. The Program has assisted hundreds of Conshohocken homeowners to bring their homes into code conformance in order to enable them to live more comfortably and safely. Eligible repairs include roof replacement, replacement of heaters, window and door replacement, electrical improvements and upgrades, plumbing improvements, improvements to kitchens and bathrooms, installation of handrails and other accessibility improvements, concrete work, and the installation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
The Program is now a four-year Deferred Loan Program, which declines by 25% each year. Program funds are received from the Pennsylvania Department of Housing and Community Development.
