Program Guidelines

Please note the following guidelines for program participants:

  • Before starting a project, the renovator must provide the property address in writing to the Department of Building & Housing; renovators will receive written confirmation that the property is eligible for the program
  • Only two projects at a time will be eligible for the program incentives
  • If a qualified renovator fails to meet City standards on a project, or no longer meets the program's eligibility requirements, the renovator will be removed from participation in the Shaker Renovator Program.
