NORWICH – For several years, the City of Norwich has offered a little known program to help low-income home owners in need of emergency repairs. Now, in an effort to replenish the funds for that program, the city will be applying for a $60,000 grant that could keep it going.
City of Norwich Community and Economic Development Coordinator Todd Dreyer explained that the city has submitted a pre-application to the USDA Office of Rural Development. The application is for a Housing Preservation Grant. The $60,000 the city is requesting would be used to replenish the funds in the Emergency Home Repair fund.
