For Immediate Release: Wednesday, August 01, 2018
Home Improvement Grants Available for Eligible Veterans
Washington County and Willamette West Habitat for Humanity have each been awarded funds from the State of Oregon Veterans Home Improvement Grant Program to assist eligible veterans in making needed repairs to their homes. Grants of up to $10,000 are available to veterans who own their own home. The funds are available on a first come, first-served basis and subject to eligibility.
The two programs in Washington County vary slightly and details are available by calling the agencies directly. At this time, mobile homes are not covered under either program.
- Washington County's Veteran Home Improvement Program offers grants up to $10,000 for older veterans and/or veterans with disabilities who own and occupy their home, are in need of critical home repairs and whose income is at or below 50% of the Average Median Income (AMI). For information contact Sarah Branson at 503-846-8215 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Willamette West Habitat for Humanity's Veteran Critical Home Repair Program offers assistance by covering up to 70% of repair costs while offering a 0% annual percentage rate (APR) loan for the balance. The program is designed for veterans who own and occupy their home and whose income is between 0-80% of AMI.
