$550,000 Community Development Block Grant for Housing Rehabilitation

The City of Ottawa was awarded its first Community Development Block Grant for Housing Rehabilitation. Letters were recently sent to residents in the designated project area, see the map. If a homeowner meets the guidelines, they may qualify for up to $50,000 in home repairs paid for by grant funds. This Fall, late September/early October, a public meeting will be held to discuss the details of the program and assist with the application process. Construction of the selected homes is tentatively slated to begin in the Spring of 2023.
