City of Pittsburg Receives Housing Grant from Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs
Housing grant to provide relief to low-income homeowners in the City of Pittsburg
Obtaining safe and affordable housing is a well-known nationwide issue. But for the City of Pittsburg, there is a new solution. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has provided the city with a grant to assist low-income families in the community with assistance rebuilding their homes.
Homeowners who are found to be eligible for this grant program will have their current home demolished and a new home built on the same land at no cost to them. Assistance is provided in the form of a 5-year grant or a 15-year deferred forgivable loan.
There are a few eligibility requirements that homeowners must meet in order to qualify for the grant; live in the Pittsburg city limits, own your home and have a warranty deed in your name, live in a substandard home, have a household income within specific limits, be current on property taxes, have a clear title to your property, and be able to relocate during construction.
To apply for this grant, homeowners can fill out a paper application from Pittsburg City Hall, or they can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are selected based on availability of funds. Individuals who need special accommodations such as the elderly or disabled can contact City Hall.
