City: Home Repair Financing Available | New

VALDOSTA – The City of Valdosta has announced the American Rescue Plan Act Minor Rehabilitation Project.

The project provides grants to homeowners within city limits tied to the census track, city officials said in a statement. The property must be titled to the applicant.

“We hope the citizens of Valdosta will take this opportunity to apply to receive minor rehabilitation assistance for homes that may not be able to afford repairs to their property,” said Anetra Riley, Neighborhood Development Manager and community protection.

Funding can cover exterior painting, pressure washing, air conditioning/heating, repairs to doors, roof, windows and porch or steps, city officials said. Residents should apply through the City of Valdosta Finance Department or on the City’s website at https://tinyurl.com/ARPAHousing.

Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis and to learn more about this opportunity, residents can attend one of two town hall meetings.

Public meetings will be held in the Town Hall Annex Multipurpose Room on Monday, October 17 at noon and Thursday, October 20 at 5:30 p.m.
