Emergency Home Repair Program

The Emergency Home Repair (EHR) program is designed to repair plumbing, heating and electrical problems that pose an immediate danger to the health and safety of low-income Denver homeowners. The program provides deferred loans. Deferred loans are due upon sale or refinance of the house or when the owner ceases to occupy the home.
