2/13/2013 11:36:00 AM Council to consider $440,000 grant for housing program
The town's Community Development Department has relied of grants to help low-income homeowners repair their residences.
To date, the Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program has served 45 homes in the community and invested more than $600,000 in needed repairs, according to a report from planner Ruth Mayday. Forty additional households are on the waiting list.
Mayday successfully applied the Arizona Department of Housing for $400,000 in grant money for home repair work and an additional $40,000 to cover administrative costs related to the program.
The grant award awaits the approval of the Town Council, which will decide Thursday whether to sign a letter of acceptance to the Department of Housing.
The council meeting will be 5:30 p.m. in the library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
