Third Federal Savings & Loan

Every year thousands of Cuyahoga County's older homeowners fall behind on their property taxes. The amounts of the delinquencies are often relatively small, but it can still be a major hurdle for older homeowners with limited incomes. Without options, senior homeowners often resort to payday lenders and/or fall victim to scams attempting to save their homes.

The Senior Property Tax Loan Program provides zero-interest loans to homeowners age 55 and older to help them pay delinquent property taxes and avoid foreclosure.

Basic guidelines include:

  • Loan limit up to $6500
  • Cuyahoga County properties only
  • Property must be owner occupied
  • Borrower must be age 55 or older
  • Borrower must participate in financial counseling at ESOP
  • Borrower must enroll in Cuyahoga County Easy Pay program to keep taxes current

 
*Other loan qualifications may apply. Our HUD-certified Housing and Financial Counselors will assess your personal financial needs.
