Elkhart offers Home Grant Program to qualified residents

ELKHART, July 24, 2013--The City of Elkhart is currently in its second year of being able to offer the Home Grant Program to residents. According to City Secretary Donna Surber, applications are available to homeowners who receive Elkhart water.

Recipients are chosen based on income requirements and condition of their home.

If approved for the program, residents must move out of their home for approximately three months. Cost for removal of home furnishings, alternative living arrangements and replacement of home furnishings is up to the home owner.

The grant provides funds which allow contractors to demolish the existing home, and build a three bedroom, two bath, brick home in its place.

Surber says there is still time to qualify and she still has a few applications left. For more information call Donna at 903-764-5657.
