USDA Seeks Applications for Grants to Help Repair Housing in Rural Communities

Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Justin Maxson announced that USDA is seeking applications for grants to make housing repairs for low- and very-low-income rural residents. The grants are being provided through USDA’s Housing Preservation Grant program.  Eligible applicants include town or county governments, public agencies, federally recognized Indian tribes, and nonprofit and faith-based organizations.

USDA does not provide funding directly to individual homeowners under this program. For additional eligibility information, see page 29555 of the June 2, 2021, Federal Register.
