We wanted to let you know of an opportunity made
available through the Planning & Development Office of Buncombe County
Are You Eligible for Community Development Block Grant
All low income Buncombe County homeowners in need of repairs are
encouraged to apply for assistance through the CDBG SSH Grant. Successful
applicants may be eligible for rehabilitation or emergency repair of their
primary residence. The cost of the repair or rehabilitation would be secured as
a forgivable loan in a promissory note and deed of trust prepared and executed
by Buncombe County. Homeowners with questions are encouraged to contact the
Buncombe County Planning Department at 250-4830, or our contracted agency
Mountain Housing Opportunities at 254-4030.
