Applications Needed for Housing Assistance Grant Opportunity
The Town of Leland is considering an application for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Neighborhood Revitalization funds from the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Division (REDD). The funding would be used to provide rehabilitation or replacement housing assistance to lower-income homeowner households. The program is sponsored by the Town of Leland, with funds potentially provided by REDD.
To apply for the grant, the Town needs applications from residents seeking repairs to their homes. Owner-occupied households with lower incomes residing in substandard housing should contact the Town if they’d like to be considered for a rehabilitation or replacement housing loan (up to 8-year term, 0% interest forgiven loan) offered through the CDBG program.
To be considered for a loan, applicants must meet the criteria outlined in this information statement. This document also includes three application forms that must be returned to the Town’s Director of Planning and Building Inspections no later than Sept. 10.
More information about the program is available on the Town of Leland website.
