HACKENSACK, NJ -- The Bergen County Home Improvement Program (HIP) is launching a public awareness campaign for Bergen County residents looking to renovate their homes. HIP can help eligible home and condominium owners with extraordinary low-cost financing for needed rehabilitation.  A new roof, windows, doors, sidewalk, driveway, exterior siding, and electrical, plumbing, or heating system replacement are just some of the upgrades that HIP provides.

“HIP can benefit qualified Bergen County home and condominium owners by providing interest free financing with no fees, no monthly payments, and no pay back until the home is sold or the title is transferred to help with vital upgrades," said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco. "The HIP program helps families preserve one of their most valuable assets – their home.”  

Eligibility is based on income, the kind of home, the type of improvements needed, family size, and other related variables. HIP’s mission is to assist qualified low to moderate income Bergen County home and condominium owners – and communities at large – with upgrades that improve their home, enhance the neighborhood and help maintain property value.
