Joplin, MO June 6, 2014, Economic Security Corporation of Southwest Area (ESC) is currently seeking applicants for the Joplin Homeowner Rehabilitation Program (J-HRP) for homeowners living within the boundaries of the Tornado Path (Disaster Zone) and live within the City Limits of Joplin. Through the J-HRP Program, selected applicants will receive needed home repairs at no cost to the homeowner. Repairs could include, but are not limited to; roof replacement, window replacement, bathroom repairs, porch repairs, and accessibility modifications.
