The Town of Waterford has been awarded funding to provide a Small Cities Housing Rehabilitation Program for Waterford property owners. Homeowners and local contractors are invited to attend an orientation for the program.
The Homeowner Orientation will be held on Thursday November 15th, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Waterford Town Hall Auditorium, 15 Rope Ferry Road.
The Contractor Orientation will be held on Thursday November 15th, 2012 from 8:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Waterford Town Hall Auditorium, 15 Rope Ferry Road.
The purpose of the housing rehabilitation program is to assist low and moderate income homeowners in making needed health and safety repairs to their homes through 0 percent interest deferred loans. Priorities in the housing rehabilitation process include ensuring the health and safety of the home's occupants; assistance in the prevention of neighborhood blight and making repairs that increase the life of structures. Eligible property owners must be low and moderate income (80% or less of area median income); must have a loan-to-value ratio of 85% and must be current on taxes.
Contractor applications are available from Lisa Low & Associates, 203-888-5624. Homeowner applications will be available at the orientation and also on the town website as of November 15th. Completed applications will be served on a first come, first served basis. Completed applications will be accepted starting 10 a.m. December 4th and should be submitted to Sally Ritchie, Senior Services Director, Waterford Community Center, 24 Rope Ferry Road, where they will be date and time stamped for first come, first served processing. Office hours for Ms. Ritchie are: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
