Home renovation effort continues throughout county PDF Print E-mail

The Perkins County Commissioners along with Southwest Nebraska Community Betterment Corporation are leading a cooperative effort to provide some needed renovation to homes within the incorporated city limits of Grant, Madrid, Elsie and Venango in Perkins County, using Community Development Block Grant funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development.
The housing program, referred to as Owner Occupied Rehab, provides families living at a moderate to low income level who own their homes, a financial resource to complete renovation work such as new windows, doors, siding, roofing, heating systems and insulation.  The dollar amount of assistance is a “forgivable loan” with no repayment necessary as long as the homeowner maintains the property as their primary residence over the next 10 years.
Households can qualify for assistance through Perkins County and SWNCBC allowing extensive renovation projects to be accomplished on their homes.  At this time, funding is still available for two more households to receive up to $24,500 in assistance.
Applications are being accepted for this rehabilitation program. For more information or an application, contact Southwest Nebraska Community Betterment Corporation at (308)352-4338.
