Nearly Half a Million Dollars Available to Help Lower Income Homeowners Make Repairs
A program that has been spearheaded by folks in Fort Dodge is offering people living on lower and fixed incomes a chance to make their homes safer and more livable.
Leaky roofs, poor windows, a furnace that is on its last leg.. These are all items that homeowners have to deal with from time to time. But what if there is no extra money in a person’s budget to keep up.
That’s where Kim Alstott, Paige Wheeler and Ashly Edwards come in with an opportunity through the Heart of Iowa Regional Housing Trust Fund.
Wheeler says there is nearly a half a million dollars available to people living in Webster, Calhoun, Hamilton, Humboldt, Pocahontas and Wright counties.
There are income guidelines, but it doesn’t hurt to call and check if you qualify as the max amounts vary depending on how many people are living in the home.
