Could this be your money? R.C. Receives Home Repairs Grants
Robertson County has received two $375.000 grants to be used for home repairs for low income families. One grant is for Robertson County and an additional grant was awarded to Adams Tennessee.
To find out if you qualify and what the funds can be used for read the information below.
- The HOME program is a grant through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development that is designed to help provide and maintain decent, safe, and affordable housing.
- This program is administered through the Tennessee Housing Development Agency. Your community has made a successful application, and funds are available to assist you with the rehabilitation of your home.
- There are two eligibility requirements for assistance through the HOME program:
a) You must own your home, hold a 99-year leasehold on the property, life time estate, or inherited property with multiple owners not all residing in the house (the owner-occupant must be low income and pays all the costs associated with ownership and maintenance of the home.) and have resided in the dwelling during the last calendar year.
b) You also must meet the income requirements of the program. The maximum household incomes are as follows:
FAMILY SIZE ANNUAL INCOME
1 $ 25,800
2 $ 29,450
3 $ 33,150
4 $ 36,800
5 $ 39,750
4. The funds may be used to correct any code violations and any developing deficiencies in the dwelling. Funds may not be used for remodeling or repairs to garages or out buildings. If a home is such poor condition that rehabilitation is not feasible, the grant will not be able to help you with the new rules we cannot reconstruct with these funds.
5. After the application deadline, all applications will be scored based on household size, income, condition of the dwelling, and other information gathered from the application. Eligible applicants will be ranked based on their score and a priority list will be created. Homeowners will be served according to their rank on the priority list. If you are eligible that does not mean you will be served, it puts you on the list to be served. The funds will determine how far down the list we get.
