The Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments has been awarded $200,000 by the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency (“NCHFA”) under the 2019 cycle of the Urgent Repair Program (“URP19”). This program provides funds to assist very-low and low- income households with special needs in addressing housing conditions which pose imminent threats to their life and/or safety or to provide accessibility modifications and other repairs necessary to prevent displacement of very-low and low- income homeowners with special needs such as frail elderly and persons with disabilities. A total of 20 households are projected to be assisted under URP19.
The KTRPO will be holding a joint TAC/TCC meeting on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 3:00-5:00 pm at the Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Governments’ offices located in Henderson.
