Home Owner Repairs - Kent County

Home Owner Repairs – This morning, the Kent County Board approved a change that may help some of your lower income constituents that own a home.  The County Board increased the grant size for small homeowner repairs from $3,500 to $10,000.  This will allow our non-profit partner – Home Repair Services (HRS) – to complete roof jobs or septic repairs that they may otherwise not been able to accomplish at the lower amount.  This change runs from today through June 30, 2016 as a pilot.  If you know of homeowners that could utilize some assistance, please have them call (616) 241-2601 and ask for the Home Repair Program.
