FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 21, 2010

June 22, deadline for Emergency Home Repair Program applications

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Housing and Community Development Department will stop taking Emergency Home Repair applications at the close of business on Tuesday, June 22. Since the availability of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the Emergency Home Repair Program was announced on May 14, the department has received 348 applications.

The Emergency Home Repair Program was allocated approximately $1 million in CDBG funds to permit approximately 185 homes to be assisted. Eligible homes will receive assistance in the order the applications were received and approved.

"The Emergency Home Repair program remains one of the City's most popular home repair programs," said City Councilwoman Sharon Sanders Brooks. "With the economy, including the unemployment rate in Kansas City, where it is, I am not surprised the applications exhausted the funding as soon as it did.”

Media inquiries about this program should be directed to Bob Jackson, manager of the Property Preservation Division, 816-513-3025.
