E-mail Print

Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE is proud to introduce the Fix-It Funds Home Improvement Loan Program to benefit the homeowners of Summit County.

Qualifying homeowners are invited to apply for low interest, fixed rate home improvement loans through Westfield Bank to fund large and small home improvement projects. Loan amounts can range from $5,000 to $50,000. Interest rates are up to 2% below the Bank's current rate.

Fix-It Funds may be used for home repairs, remodeling, property upgrades, and code compliance with few restrictions.
  • Install decks, porches, or awnings
  • Remodel bathroom, kitchen, or attic
  • Paint exterior of house and garage
  • Replace air conditioner or furnace
  • Add a security system or skylights

To qualify for the program, the parcel must be owner-occupied (single or multi-family unit dwellings are eligible), appraised in county tax records for $250,000 or less (excluding land value), and be current on real estate taxes. There is no income limit.

The application process begins with the Summit County Fiscal Office. Homeowners must submit a completed application with parcel information, project details, and a cost estimate. A limited amount of funding is available and loans will be approved and funded on a first-come, first-served basis. Loans are originated by Westfield Bank, FSB (NMLS #507706). All loans are subject to credit review and approval.
