The Johnson County Board of Supervisors recently allocated American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for home rehabilitation and repair projects. Applications are now being accepted from homeowners/mobile homeowners who are interested in participating. Homeowners may qualify for up to $6,000 or $12,000 to make improvements to their homes.
The program objective is to help keep people in their homes by providing low-income homeowners, including mobile homeowners, assistance with home repairs and modifications that allow residents to age in place, improve living conditions, or make the home more energy efficient, particularly in households with older adults, those with chronic health conditions, and young children.
Examples of eligible projects include:
Income Guidelines for Eligible Participants:(50% of area median income for Johnson County)
