Applications are now being accepted for the owner-occupied housing rehabilitation program in the city of Knox.
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.
The city hopes to partner with the Indiana Department of Housing and Community Development and to provide assistance for six to 10 homeowners.
You may obtain an application at the Knox city clerk-treasurer’s office and return it by Tuesday, April 16.
The Knox City Council will hold a public hearing on an Area Five housing grant to assist with this program on Monday, April 22 at 2 p.m. CT at Knox City Hall.
