This program is designed to assist the low income homeowner whose property is facing condemnation and/or poses a health or safety risk. This program provides the funds for the demolition of the structure while allowing the owner to maintain ownership of the property without the standard condemnation lien.
Owning a home is part of the American Dream. The Grants and Community Development team can assist those trying to achieve homeowner status with the application of CDBG funding. One of our primary goals is to help expand home ownership opportunities to our low and moderate income citizens.
CDBG funds may be used to assist qualifying homeowners with the repair, rehabilitation or reconstruction of owner-occupied units. Funds may also be used for grants, loans, loan guarantees, interest subsidies, or other forms of assistance to homeowners for the purpose of repairs, rehabilitation, or reconstruction.
The Sewer Hook-Up program offers low income families an opportunity to be hooked up to a main sewer trunk line [in existence]. The family must occupy the home, have insurance on the home, be current on all taxes, and meet HUD income guidelines.
Public Service Grants are available to not for profit organizations serving extremely low, very low, and low to moderate income residents, OR that serve those populations that are presumed to be low income such as those with special needs, persons with disabilities, homeless persons, and/or the elderly.
