Montour County Residents Can Apply For No-Cost Home Repairs

Montour County residents may be able to tap into a $500,000 grant for no-cost housing repairs if they apply to get on the wait list now. Interested homeowners may call SEDA-COG’s Stacy Anderson at 800-326-9310. If the application is successful, the HOME Existing Owner-Occupied Housing Program grant may be awarded in early 2020. Homeowners can now receive up to $65,000 instead of a past limit of $35,000 in home 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.
