Knox Mayor Rick Chambers alerted the Knox City Council recently that he is working on a Housing Rehabilitation Grant.

“I met with Ed Buswell from K-IRPC to proceed on a housing rehabilitation grant,” said Mayor Chambers. “That grant will target the elderly and low income families. Last time we had about 18 applications and we are shooting for 15-20 applications and we would like to end up doing six to eight projects. That’s right in the area of what we did last time. We’re working on that. They have a fine time line. They will do the publishing and they will put together an application for me that will be available in my office or Jeff Houston’s office shortly. Within the next couple of weeks, that will be publicized for the citizens of Knox.”

We will notify the residents if and when that grant becomes available.
