Ulster County to Apply for Assistance For Low Income Homeowners
Ulster County Executive Michael Hein announced on Monday that he is applying for Community Development Block Grant funding to assist low income homeowners in need of housing improvements with priority given to homeowners needing repairs due to Tropical Storms Irene or Lee.
Rural Ulster Preservation Company will administer the program for the county. The county and RUPCO will apply for $750,000 with applications from homeowners due on August 7. Funds are expected to be available in the spring 2013.
“Hurricane Irene exacerbated the need for housing repairs within the county,” said RUPCO Executive Director Kevin O’Connor.
