RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (RPIP)
*Now available within targeted boundaries of the Belmont DeVilliers, Tanyard and Eastside Neighborhoods.*
The City of Pensacola Community Redevelopment Agency's Residential Property Improvement Program (RPIP) was established to encourage reinvestment in Pensacola’s historic urban core neighborhoods, address deferred exterior maintenance and preserve affordability for residents within designated Community Redevelopment Areas.
Property owners may receive up to $35,000 in construction rehabilitation assistance in the form of a deferred loan (no payment required) that will be forgiven in full at the expiration of the loan period. Properties may be owner-occupied, rental, single-family, or multi-family dwellings.
Eligible rehabilitation activities may include: structure cleaning, exterior painting or re-siding, doors and windows, roofing, landscaping, exterior lighting, fencing, porch repair/replacement, foundation work and shutters.
Program funds are limited and subject to prioritization of target areas. The maximum project cost for owner-occupied properties with household incomes of 120% or less of the area median income (AMI) is $35,000. Renter-occupied properties or households with household incomes greater than 120% of the AMI may receive a maximum of $17,500.
