City throws weight behind $500,000 housing rehab grant

Following a public hearing, the Sweet Home City Council on Nov. 27 approved a resolution to move forward with a request for an additional $100,00 in Community Development Block Grant funds to pay specifically for rehabilitation of manufactured homes in mobile home parks.

"The council during its regular meeting on Nov. 13 agreed to sponsor an application for a $400,000 grant. Since then, City Manager Ray Towry said, 'we have an option to get more money.'

'The State of Oregon has identified mobile home parks as a critical housing option for low- and moderate-income homeowners,' Newcomb said. 'A new program to support these homeowners has been initiated this year. CDBG funds in the amount of $100,000 are now available for low- to moderate-income manufactured homeowners who reside in mobile home parks. These funds are to be distributed as grants, not loans.'

'They may be used on homes built after 1977 for up to 50 percent of their real market value, Newcomb said. 'We expect to help these residents replace roofs, install accessibility aids and repair plumbing and electrical issues.' ”
