Town receives $440,000 grant to assist low-income households with essential repairs
This past week, Ruth Mayday, planner for the Town of Prescott Valley and project manager for its Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation program, announced the the Arizona Department of Housing awarded the town a $440,000 Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation grant.
The purpose of the Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation program is to assist low-to-moderate income households with essential repairs to their homes. The work must remedy building code violations or heath and safety issues to qualify for assistance. Homeowners must have incomes below the area median income; for a household of two, income must be at or below $36,950, or $46,150 for a household of four. Certain populations such as households with minor children, the elderly, or those with disabilities are eligible for priority consideration.
Homeowners can download an application from the Community Development page of The Town of Prescott Valley's website: www.pvaz.net. Applications also are available at the Community Development Department on the second floor of the Civic Center. Contractors interested in bidding on projects can contact the Community Development Department for information regarding bid dates as well.
The Town has received and invested over $3 million in funding from the ADOH for various housing programs, and nearly $1.4 million from the Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation program, assisting 50 households with necessary repairs.
Of those households assisted, more than half were mobile homes.
