Rental Housing Transition Loan

Created in the 2004 contract negotiations with the University, this loan provides help in transitioning from one rental housing situation to another. HUECU will provide a zero-interest loan up to $2,500 to any HUCTW bargaining unit member who needs to cover up-front costs, such as realtor’s fees, security deposits, first and/or last month’s rent deposit if required before occupancy, and moving expenses.

Homeowner Moving Expenses Loan

In the 2007 contract negotiations, the Rental Loan program was expanded to cover moving expenses for homeowners. HUECU will provide a zero-interest loan up to $1,000 to any HUCTW bargaining unit member to assist in the payment of moving expenses incurred while transitioning into ownership of a house or condominium.

Home Emergency Hardship Loan

In the 2007 contract negotiations, a new program was created to help with certain types of housing-related emergencies. Home emergencies will be defined as catastrophic rental and homeowner emergencies such as damage caused by a natural disaster, unexpected and extraordinarily high costs of heating a household, or repair or replacement of damaged heating units or other vital appliances. HUECU will provide a zero-interest loan up to $2,500 to any HUCTW bargaining unit member who needs to cover costs related to the above mentioned circumstances.
