The Town of Leland is considering an application for CDBG Neighborhood Revitalization funds from the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Division (REDD) 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 the Rural Economic Development Division. The Town encourages owner-occupied households with lower incomes residing in substandard housing to contact the Town if they would 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. 

If you wish to be considered for CDBG assistance, you must return the three application forms in the packet linked below no later than July 20, 2022.
