Marlborough re-instates housing rehabilitation program

Marlborough – The city of Marlborough will be re-opening its Community Development Block Grant-funded Housing Rehabilitation Program. The city received approval from the Department of Housing and Community Development to reinstate the program earlier this month.

"We're very pleased to be able to off er this valuable assistance once again to local homeowners," Mayor Nancy Stevens said. "The program provides financial assistance to families of modest means to help them keep their homes safe and affordable."

The housing program is administered by the Marlborough Community Development Authority. Executive Director Kevin Flynn said the program will start with the backlog of cases that were in the application process when the program shut down, then move to the waiting list.

"There were a number of homeowners who had applied but whose applications were put on hold," he said. "We'll be contacting those homeowners to invite them to complete the application process and provide updated information so we can process their cases."

To be eligible for the program, the gross annual income of property residents must fall within predetermined guidelines issued by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
