Applications sought for grants to improve the quality of rural housing

June 27, 2013 | 0 comments

USDA is accepting applications for grants to help low- and very-low-income rural residents repair their homes, according to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

"The Obama Administration and USDA are working to ensure that rural homeowners and renters have safe, affordable and sanitary places to live," Vilsack said. "These grant funds will help low- and very-low-income residents in our rural communities maintain and repair their homes and make them more energy-efficient."

Grants are provided to qualified intermediaries such as town or county governments, public agencies, community organizations, federally recognized Indian Tribes, non-profit and faith-based organizations.

The grants are then distributed to qualified homeowners or owners of multi-family rental properties or cooperative dwellings who rent to low- and very-low-income residents.

The grants can be used to weatherize and repair existing structures, install or improve plumbing or provide access to people with disabilities.

In addition, the program assists rental property owners and cooperative housing complexes in repairing and rehabilitating their units if they agree to make such units available to low- and very low-income persons.

Last year, Community Development Alternatives, Inc., in Prairie du Chien, received funds to help five very-low income homeowners make repairs to their homes.

Additionally, in Vernon County, Couleecap, Inc. was able to assist four very-low income homeowners make needed repairs.

For additional information on eligibility for Housing Preservation Grants, see the June 18 Federal Register.
