The City of Vincennes is trying to get some of our local tax dollars back into town through a home improvement grant program. The program can allocate up to $15 Thousand dollars per home for needed repairs. It's designed for low income, elderly, and disabled home owners in certain sections of town and it's not a done deal.
The problem is the program approval chances may be improved by the number of applications the city can show to the funding agency. If you know of a person who's home may qualify or are such a homeowner, call city hall or stop in there and get the specifics.
It might seem like a long shot, but it's a long shot with a very positive outcome - for the homeowner and for our communtiy.
The government's not going to stop spending money, so we might as well get our share.
