Home Improvement (not the TV sitcom)!
The Borough is looking to assist more homes in need of repair!
In August, the Borough of Palmyra will be applying to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs for federal funds* to help more Palmyra homeowners with their needed home repairs. The goal is to partner the federal funds with the successful existing Palmyra Housing Rehabilitation Program, which currently only has a few remaining openings. Eligible homeowners can receive up to approximately $20,000 in repairs or replacements of sub-standard major systems such as roof, electric, plumbing, heating, foundation, windows, and more.
The Burlington County Bridge Commission, on behalf of Palmyra, has retained Community Grants, Planning & Housing, LLC, (CGP&H) to prepare the application to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. It is imperative to demonstrate eligible homeowners’ interest and housing repair needs. If your home needs improvements, please visit CGP&H’s website hip.cgph.net for more program information, including income limits, and to complete an online preliminary application ASAP. This will get you on the program waiting list, which is first come-first served. If you have limited internet access, please call CGP&H at 609-664-2783.
*Financial assistance for this federally funded housing rehabilitation program is made possible by a grant from the N.J. Dept. of Community Affairs, Division of Housing and Community Resources, Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program, Governor Philip Murphy and Commissioner Sheila Oliver. Funding for the State’s CDBG program is provided by a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development, State Community Development Block Grant Program.
