Worcester County Housing Rehabilitation Program Accepting Applications

HOUSING REHABILITATION ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE
Worcester County is currently accepting applications from low to moderate income individuals and families who may be eligible for general home rehabilitation assistance through the Worcester County Housing Rehabilitation Program. This program provides grant and loan funding to owner occupied properties for general rehabilitation and lead abatement services.
“The goal of this program is to mitigate unsuitable living conditions and increase the quality of living for the citizens of Worcester County,” Housing Rehabilitation Program Coordinator Davida Washington said. “Since Worcester County began administering the housing rehabilitation program in 1987, we have rehabilitated nearly 10 to 12 houses per year.”
Eligible homes may be located in either a rural area or in an incorporated township of Worcester County. Priority is given to dwellings having health or safety hazards, disabled homeowners, homeowners over the age of 62, and households of extremely low income.
Eligibility requirements include but are not limited to the following:
-Property owners must be current on property taxes through FY21.
-The family must be of low to moderate income.
-The homeowner must have property insurance.
-The homeowner must have acceptable credit or be willing to set up payment plans on any non-medical accounts in collections. Judgments must be paid in full.
