The deadline is tomorrow for applications for the owner-occupied housing rehabilitation program in the city of Knox.
Applications are available in the Knox city clerk-treasurer’s office. Six to 10 homeowners will be assisted in this program with funding from the Indiana Department of Housing and Community Development. A public hearing on the matter is set for Monday, April 22 at 2 p.m. CT at Knox City Hall.
The program is designed to help elderly, disabled, low-income and single parents with children in the home receive funding to help improve safety conditions at their place of residence. These improvements may include a new furnace, roofing, plumbing, electrical, windows, and other qualified accessibility and safety issues. The home must be structurally sound. Those who apply for this program must meet certain criteria.
