Housing Redevelopment

Gaithersburg encourages landlords to reinvest in older rental apartment buildings via the Multifamily Investment Loan program. This program was created to preserve affordable housing opportunities for residents while enhancing energy efficiency and sustainability. Types of renovation expenses which qualify for the program include roofing, windows, appliances, HVAC, insulation, structural repairs, and more. Applicants must contact the Office of Economic Development prior to executing an agreement with a contractor.
