Housing Improvement Area


Applications due no later than March 31, 2022

The City Council has approved the use of the Housing Improvement Area Program as a financial tool for improvements in condominiums and townhomes. Housing Improvement Areas are City-funded loans that enable condo and townhome associations to complete needed improvements to common areas of their development that they are otherwise unable to finance. Funding for HIA loans is limited and will be awarded on a competitive basis. Please see below for detailed information on the approval process, HIA policy and property standards.

Note that HIA funds only common area improvements that the association cannot otherwise finance through any association fund balance, commercial loans or individual private owner loans. The improvements allowed under this law include improvements to the common elements in a condominium complex or townhome development. Examples include roofing, siding, landscaping, roadways, parking lots, water lines, painting, and decks.

HIA provided benefits to homeowners include:

  • Initiated by the association
  • Improves property appearance and home values
  • Provides cost effective method to finance
