HOME Program – Housing Rehabilitation Grant
Perry County may be awarded a $500,000 housing rehabilitation grant later this year, and county residents are encouraged to apply now to get on the waiting list to receive no-cost home repairs. Applicants must reside within Perry County to receive the assistance.
Homeowners may be eligible to receive up to $65,000 in home improvements.
Eligible repairs include structural, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating/furnace, window replacement, radon and lead-based paint mitigation, and energy-related improvements. Also included are modifications for mobility-impaired residents. There is no cost to homeowners who maintain home residency over a five-year period from the date of signing.
Homeowners can go through the process hassle-free with SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) managing it from start to finish, said Teri Provost, Director of the agency’s Housing Rehabilitation program.
Interested homeowners may call SEDA-COG’s Stacy Anderson to join the wait list at 1-800-326-9310.
