Program Offers Funds for Vital Home Repairs

By Khurram Saeed, The Journal News

Rockland homeowners who are above a certain age and below a certain income level may be eligible for money to make critical home repairs.

The Rockland County Office of Community Development has allocated $150,000 this year for the program, which is meant to fix substandard conditions, such as a leaky roof, faulty electrical wiring or aging plumbing.

Known as the Owner Occupied Rehabilitation Loan Program, it is open to low- to moderate-income property owners who are age 55 or older or severly disabled.

In order to qualify for the program, a household with two people in it, for example, cannot have a gross annual income that exceeds $51,550. Also, the house has to appraise for $380,000 or less.

Joe Abate, director of the county's Office of Community Development, said senior on fixed incomes who cannot afford to make repairs stand to benefit the most.

"The county is aging but most (older people) want to stay in their homes," Abate said recently. "This might provide them with some funds to be able to do that."

Call the Rockland County Office of Community Development at 845-574-4850 for details or an application for the Owner Occupied Rehabilitation Loan Program.
