County applies for HOME grant
The County Commission approved an agreement allowing Mayor Rogers Anderson and the county to apply for a state grant that would provide funding for home improvements for low-income families.
Tennessee Housing Development Agency HOME grant could provide up to $500,000 for those in need in Williamson County. The county has received the grant three times in the past, which helped about a dozen families each time.
“Folks need help a lot of times in Williamson County,” Anderson said. “We don’t think they are out there, but believe me, they are.”
Williamson County Community Action Partnership also applied for a THDA HOME grant in a separate category targeting help for the developmentally disabled in the county. If chosen, CHP could buy and rehabilitate four rental-housing units for families of income levels below 50 percent of the HUD median income and provide 24/7 care for the families.
