Tracy Achenbach of the East Central Iowa Housing Trust Fund gave a short presentation at the supervisor’s meeting Tuesday morning. She explained two programs that her office is providing that are available for residents of Washington County. One program offers grants up to $7,500 for repairs, such as roofs, furnaces, or plumbing and is in the form of a five-year forgivable loan. The requirements for this program include owning the home and income requirements.
The other program is for people looking to develop housing for people that have lower incomes. For more information call 365-9941 or go to ecicog.org.
