Habitat for Humanity of Lapeer-Tuscola announces that it will hold two meetings in February to initiate the Huron County Critical Home Repair Grant application process for 2022. Last year 45 families took part in the program to do repairs to help them stay in their homes. Only the following types of repairs are allowed: new roofs, doors, windows, hot water tanks, stoves, insulation, wells and sewage treatment plants. The grant does not include repairs to plumbing, electrical and basement or foundation work.
The meetings take place in the pigeon library in Nitzstr. 7236 in Pigeon on February 3rd from 2pm to 4pm and then on February 5th at the Franklin Inn in Bad Ax from 11am to 1pm for those who can’t make it The first meeting. Eligible applicants must reside in Huron County and own their own home and land on which the house stands. Homes purchased with a land contract or in a RV park are not eligible.
During the meetings, Habitat staff will guide applicants through the required paperwork. All questions are answered. Residents must live in Huron County and meet income requirements based on family size. Please bring your driver’s license, social security card and a certificate or title with you. Additional meetings will be held in January and February for residents of Tuscola and Huron counties.
“We got pretty good results with our applications,” said housing manager Ed Watteny. “As long as you submit all of the required paperwork and meet income qualification guidelines and other parameters, you should be approved,” said Watteny. Getting papers on time is very important, so Habitat recommends anyone wishing to apply for one of the grant sessions. Check your local newspaper for more information.
