Grants Available For Low Income Homeowners
Attention to those with ties to the Dorchester village government, the Dorchester United Methodist Church, Dorchester Community Foundation, and others: The USDA is seeking applications for grants to make housing repairs for low- and very-low-income rural residents. The grants are being provided through USDA Rural Development's Housing Preservation Grant program.
Grants can be used for a variety of needs, such as repairs to resolve health or safety issues or for energy-efficiency improvements to reduce utility costs.
Eligible applicants for Housing Preservation Grants (HPG) include town or county governments, public agencies, and non-profits, such as a church or foundation.
USDA does not provide funding directly to homeowners under this program.
More information on the pre-application and the application process may be accessed at: http://www.rd.usda.gov/programs-services/housing-preservation-grants/ne under the “Forms and Resources” tab.
The deadline for receipt of all pre-applications is 5:00 p.m. CST on March 15, 2016.
For HPG questions or to request an application, please contact Jerry Pesek, Multi Family Housing Specialist at 402-437-5566 or by email at Jerry.Pesek@ne.usda.gov.
