Neighborhood Development Single Family Residential Rehabilitation (SFRR) Repair Program Open Application Period Begins Jan 4
The City of Valdosta, Neighborhood Development Division is pleased to announce the opening of the application period of the Single Family Residential Rehabilitation (SFRR) Repair Program for Fiscal Year 2021 of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The SFRR Program is a home rehabilitation and emergency repair program is offered to income-eligible homeowners, who reside in the City of Valdosta. Assistance in this program will be offered in the form of an interest-free, deferred loan, which will require a clear property title and a property lien.
Citizens interested in applying should call Neighborhood Development to see if they are eligible and to inquire about the necessary documentation needed for application submission. Any homeowner that has deed issues will be asked to reapply when they have those issues resolved.
Complete applications can be submitted:
In Person (paper application): At 300 North Lee Street, Second Floor, Room 206
NO PARTIAL APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR REVIEW
The application period will be open from Monday, January 4, 2021 at 8 a.m. through Thursday, April 30, 2021 at 5 p.m. Applications will be accepted until funds for the program year have been expended or the application period closes, whichever occurs first. THERE IS NO WAITLIST FOR THIS PROGRAM. Applicants requiring assistance completing an application may request a reasonable accommodation in order to complete an application by contacting the Neighborhood Development Division.
Applicants will be accepted on a ‘First Come, First Serve, First Qualified’ basis. Again, if a homeowner has issues with their deed, they will not qualify for the program at this time and their application will not be placed on hold. The homeowner will have to reapply after all necessary paperwork is completed and have met all eligibility requirements. If all the yearly funding has been allocated, applicants must wait until the upcoming year to reapply.
“Each year that we receive funding is a blessing and we need to be good stewards of that funding and make sure we can assist as many families as we possibly can,” says Vanassa Ross, Neighborhood Development Director.
