Home Ownership Preservation Program

The Home Ownership Preservation Program (HOPP) provides up to $30,000 to homeowners for health, safety, energy efficiency and accessibility repairs in qualified, owner-occupied homes. Households under 50% of the area median income (AMI) can receive up to $50,000 in services. There are income and eligibility requirements.  DHCD has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Maryland to administer this program.
