To further CDCLI’s mission of increasing investment in neighborhoods, protecting the assets of homeowners, and protecting the environment, a low-interest rate loan product with zero application fees, and zero closing costs is now available to assist with the installation of a Suffolk County approved replacement septic system!
This new loan from CDCLI is made available in conjunction with the Suffolk County Septic Improvement Program. Under the Suffolk County Septic Improvement Program, homeowners may apply for a grant from Suffolk County to assist with the cost of replacing outdated and failing septic systems with state-of-the-art nitrogen reducing systems designed to reverse decades of damaging nitrogen pollution of ground and surface waters. CDCLI will then make its low interest loan available if the homeowner is in need of additional funds to cover the cost of installing the new system. These loans are made available with NO application fees and NO closing costs.
The purpose of the loan is to provide “gap” funds to finance the difference between the Suffolk County grant and the contract amount needed to install the replacement septic system. Loan amounts cannot exceed $10,000.
This new program is made possible with the help and support of Bridgehampton National Bank, Long Island Community Foundation, the Rauch Foundation, and others.
