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.
