The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced funding to help low- and very-low-income rural residents repair their homes and to make their homes accessible to people with disabilities... The Housing Preservation Grants can be used to weatherize and repair existing structures, install or improve plumbing or provide access to people with disabilities. Funding is not provided directly to homeowners by USDA under this program. Learn more about these grants. Apply by contacting the local Rural Development office in your area.
Application deadline is August 22, 2011.
