Seymour named one of four Indiana communities to receive funds to help low-moderate income homeowners

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs announced on December 5th that four Indiana communities, including Seymour, have been awarded Owner Occupied Rehabilitation grants totaling $1,000,000. The grants will be used to empower the communities to directly fund homeowners of low-moderate income to make needed repairs on their homes.

“Having a safe and livable home contributes immensely to overall quality of life,” Lt. Gov. Crouch said. “This funding will greatly benefit these four Hoosier communities and will provide assistance to those in need in making necessary repairs to their homes.”

Communities awarded will set up a program to fund low- and moderate-income homeowners to make repairs on their homes. Eligible repairs include roof repair or replacement, ADA accessibility, heating and cooling replacement, lighting and electrical upgrades, and water heater replacement.

“The goal of this program is to help Hoosiers stay in their homes and raise their families in a safe environment," said OCRA Executive Director Denny Spinner. “Through these grants, communities provide the financial resources to homeowners to assist them in making critical home repairs. This investment increases not only their quality of life, but that of the community as well."

The four Hoosier communities received the following amounts: 

  • The City of Lawrenceburg is awarded $250,000; 
  • The City of North Vernon is awarded $250,000; 
  • The City of Seymour is awarded $250,000; and
  • Jefferson County is awarded $250,000.

Seymour committed $27,778 in matching funds.

The State of Indiana distributes the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant funds to rural communities to assist units of local government with various community projects. The Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program is currently a pilot program.
