Title I loans may be used to finance permanent property improvements that protect or improve the basic livability or utility of the property, including manufactured homes, single-family and multi-family homes, nonresidential structures, and the preservation of historic homes. The loans can also be used for fire safety equipment. 7,562 people improved their homes through this program. The budget for this program is $109,000,000.
