Historic Macon announces another round of home loans

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Homeowners in the Vineville Historic District, Downtown Macon, and College Hill Corridor can apply for special home loans.

Historic Macon announced a new round of facade loans for $5,000 and $10,000.  They also feature a three-percent interest rate for the life of the loan, not to exceed five years.  Ethiel Garlington, Executive Director of Historic Macon, says the goal of the loans is to enhance the exterior appearance of the home with painting, roofing, landscaping, and minor repairs.

Georgia Power also mentioned its Energy Rebate Program, that is associated with the facade loans.  Rebates up to $2,575 have a potential annual electric savings of up to 30-percent.

“The goal is to make the loans affordable and to save you money in the longrun,” Garlington explained.

Applications for the loans are accepted year round and deadlines fall on the last day of each month.  A loan committee overseas the application and approval process.  To learn more information visit, click here.
