CLAY COUNTY – Clay County has secured a $500,000 HOME program grant from the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) to help local families with home repairs.
“This HOME grant will go a long way to help families in our community get the home repairs they need,” said Clay County Mayor Dale Reagan. “I appreciate THDA’s investment in Clay County.”
HOME program funding is intended to help families of low income, senior citizens, and individuals with disabilities who cannot afford to bring their homes up to code. Officials anticipate helping as many as 10 homeowners with issues such as leaking plumbing, unsafe flooring, faulty wiring, damaged roofs, and more.
“Mayor Reagan and his team earned this grant by putting together a smart plan that is going to make a significant impact for some of Clay County’s most vulnerable citizens,” said THDA Community Outreach Liaison Denise McBride.
The HOME program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and administered in Tennessee by THDA. HOME grants must be used for the production, preservation, or rehabilitation of affordable housing for low and very low-income families and individuals.
