The U.S. Department of Agriculture announces the Notice of Funding
Availability (NOFA) for the Housing Preservation Grant Program. This
program is available for residents of rural areas whose incomes fall into
the low and very low income categories and who need assistance to repair or
rehabilitate their homes. An area is considered rural if it is populated
with 20,000 people or less. Urban area residents would not be eligible for
the program. Nonprofits, local governments, and Native American tribes can
receive the grant funding to repair the properties of these residents.
Grant funding is not provided to individuals. The deadline to submit the
pre-application is August 22, 2011.
