Short Description

Residents should apply now

Body

A housing rehabilitation grant may be awarded to Mount Carmel Township, and residents are encouraged to apply now to get on the waiting list.

 

Plus, more dollars can now be spent per home than in previous grants, so homeowners can receive up to $65,000 instead of a limit of $35,000 in 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.

 

SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) assists the homeowner through the whole process, said Teri Provost, director of the agency’s Housing Rehabilitation program.

 

“We help the homeowner from start to finish – from obtaining a contractor, managing the project, to anything that may arise during or after the rehabilitation process,” Provost said.

 

Interested homeowners may call SEDA-COG’s Sue Goddard at 800-326-9310.
