FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale is seeking applicants for the Trust Fund Single Family Rehabilitation Program with Roof Only Option. There are two options for applicants to choose from: the Single Family Rehabilitation Program (SFR) and the roof only option (SFR-R).
The (SFR) option will assist low-income homeowners with repairing their homes and removing health and safety hazards by replacing costly maintenance items. Eligible homeowners will receive up to $45,000 in assistance.
Under (SFR-R), eligible homeowners may address only the roof on their home if no other health and safety issues are present. SFR-R offers up to $16,500 to mitigate against further roof damage and deterioration, so the property is insurable.
This grant opportunity is open to homeowners within Carbondale city limits. If you are interested, visit the City's website or stop by the Planning and Development Management Division at City Hall for a pre-application form. All forms must be submitted in person by August 23 at 5 p.m.
If you have questions or would like more information, contact Carbondale City Planner Megan Brightharp at (618) 457-3258.
