APPLICATIONS NOW ACCEPTED FOR URGENT REPAIRS FOR HOMES OF VERY-LOW INCOME HOMEOWNERS

 

Catawba County is receiving applications for Urgent Repair loan funds.  This program is sponsored by Catawba County with funds provided by the NC Housing Trust Fund.  Catawba County will receive $75,000 of this loan to assist at least 16 homeowners.  This loan will alleviate housing conditions which pose an imminent threat to the life or safety of very low-income homeowners with special needs or will provide accessibility modifications. 

 

Eligible households with special needs include households with members who are at least 62 years old; handicapped or disabled members; a single parent with at least one dependent child in residence; five or more persons; or the household has a child or children below the age of six whose blood lead levels are elevated.  This program can also enable frail elderly homeowners, and others with physical disabilities living in the home, to remain in their homes by providing essential accessibility modifications. 

 

To obtain an application, call Laurie Powell, Program Administrator, 828-322-9191 ext. 249; WPCOG, PO Box 9026, Hickory, NC 28603.
