Urgent Repair 2019

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.
