Fridley: Emergency Deferred Loan Program

The intent of the Fridley Emergency Deferred Loan Program is to provide funds to owner-occupants of properties who face emergency home repairs and are unable to obtain funds to repair the problem(s) through traditional funding (loan) sources. With this in mind, applicant’s eligibility for other financing will be analyzed prior to consideration of the Emergency Deferred Loan Program. If the applicant qualifies for other program financing, then the applicant will not be eligible for the Emergency Deferred Loan Program.
