The Emergency Home Repair (EHR) program is designed to address problems that pose an immediate danger to the health and safety of low-income Denver homeowners.

The program offers zero percent (0%) interest, perpetually deferred loans of up to $6,000. Deferred loans are only due upon sale or refinance of the house or when the owner ceases to occupy the home.

Eligible Improvements

Loan funds from the EHR Program can be used to make essential emergency home repairs such as roofing and gutters, heating, electrical, and plumbing.  Some appliance replacements (hot water heater or furnace) are also offered through this program.  Many clients also qualify for a grant of up to $3,000 towards new energy efficient appliances thanks to DURA’s partnership with the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships.

As part of DURA’s commitment to the homeowner, DURA oversees the work being performed by the contractor to make sure repairs are completed quickly, at a competitive price, with the highest quality work, and in the best interest of the homeowner.

To qualify for the EHR Program, you must be a Denver resident, own and live in your home, and have a household income at or below the thresholds listed in the tables below.
