North Carolina Housing Finance Agency:


Low-income homeowners in Moore County are encouraged to submit an application for assistance under the 2017 Urgent Repair Program to the Planning & Transportation Department beginning Friday, September 1st thru Friday, September 29th by 4:30 pm.

Under this program income, qualified applicants can be assisted with the removal of imminent threats to life or safety in the home.  Wheel chair ramps, grab bars and other accessibility features for persons with disabilities are commonly installed under this program. A maximum of $8,000 in repairs may be invested in any single home under this program.

Priority for assistance will be given based on income and special needs including those who are handicapped or disabled, elderly (> 62), large households (five or more), single-parent households, households with a child under the age of six with an elevated blood lead level, or a military veteran.  Homeowner’s household income must not exceed 50% of the area median income for the household size (URP17 Income Limits listed below).  Half of those served cannot exceed the 30% of area median income threshold.

2017 Income Limits for Moore County

8 $25,750 $42,900

Eligible applicants must own their home and live in it as a primary residence in order to qualify for assistance under any housing rehab program administered by Moore County.  Those previously served under the Urgent Repair Program likely will not receive additional funding as there is a lifetime cap on the total amount of assistance one home may receive under this program.

The Urgent Repair Program is a $100,000 award to Moore County by the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency.  It is anticipated that at least 13 homeowners will be served under this program.  For more information or to receive an application please contact the Moore County Planning & Transportation Department at(910) 947-5010.
