The Moore County Department of Transportation’s 2018 Urgent Repair Program’s open application period begins in September. The Urgent Repair Program’s purpose is to assist low income owner occupied households with urgent repair needs.
Low-income homeowners in Moore County are encouraged to submit an application for assistance to the Planning & Transportation Department beginning September 4 through September 28.
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.
Please contact Moore County Planning and Transportation Department at 910-947-5010 for a request for assistance or for more information.
