City opens Joplin Housing Rehab Program for nonprofits to apply for funding of housing rehab

Updated:

POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF JOPLIN

The City of Joplin is opening another one of its Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) programs, the Joplin Housing Rehabilitation Program. The City will have program applications available starting Monday, November 25, 2013 for those nonprofit organizations that are interested in applying for funding to conduct rehabilitation of single-family owner-occupied residences in the tornado-affected area. Applications are available at the 4th Floor of City Hall located at 602 S. Main Street, Joplin and will be due by 5 p.m. on December 31, 2013.

The City will also host two stakeholder meetings for those nonprofit organizations that may be interested in applying. The meetings will provide information about the program and allow potential applicants to ask questions. The two meetings will cover identical material, thus organizations need only attend one of these options. The meetings will be held on Wednesday, December 4 at 2 p.m. and on Thursday, December 5 at 9 a.m. Both meetings will be held in the 5th Floor Study of City Hall. Nonprofit organizations who are considering participating in this program are encouraged to attend this stakeholder meeting to learn more about this additional program to advance housing recovery in the City of Joplin.

For more information contact Jonathan Raiche at the City of Joplin, 417-624-0820, ext. 572. If you are in need of disability related auxiliary aids or services, please contact the City Clerk’s office at 417-624-0820, ext. 220. Forty-eight (48) hour notice is necessary to make arrangements for the aids or services.
