Orangefield outreach night!!! November 13, 2018 Information below...

Representatives from Legacy Community Development Corporation will be in Orangefield, November 13, 2018, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Cormier Museum. Legacy CDC, together with Rural LISC, is administering the Health and Safety Stabilization program in Orange County. The program provides repair assistance to homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey. The Program will address basic health and safety issues, with an average cost of repairs estimated at $13,000-15,000 per home. Repairs are funded through a grant from the American Red Cross and backed with the expertise of a local construction management partner. To be eligible for the program, applicants must demonstrate an ownership interest in the home, the home must have been damaged during Hurricane Harvey, and the applicant or household must meet certain income requirements (120 percent of area median income – most families will likely qualify). Some other criteria may apply.


Residents of Orangefield and surrounding rural areas are invited to come learn more about the program and pickup an application. Applications may also be completed and turned in during this time.


In addition, representatives from USDA Rural Development will be present to provide information on home repair funding options that may be available through USDA RD to area residents. Applications and program information will be available and residents can meet with local representatives individually to learn more.
