Home Rehabilitation & Needs
Help for home repairs, insulation and energy upgrades, and water well safety and improvement, as well as homebuyer and foreclosure counseling assistance.
Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (GLCAP) completed 2020 by helping 987 northwest Ohio households with COVID-19-related financial assistance. In late October, GLCAP received $1.3 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act stimulus funding to provide mortgage, rent, water and utility, and food assistance to Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood County residents who were financially impacted by COVID-19. Funding was provided to GLCAP in late October. Staff moved rapidly, reaching out to households in need and helping people through the application process before the end-of-the-year application deadline.
Help is now available for Crawford County residents who need financial assistance with home repairs. The county, in partnership with the City of Bucyrus and the City of Galion, has received a two-year, $1 million grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency, Office of Community Development for the Community Housing Impact & Preservation (CHIP) program, which provides home repairs for low to moderate-income households.
