County Mayor Randy Heady recently announced that Jackson County is nearing completion of a government funded home repair project.
According to Heady, the project has been ongoing for a few years. He explained that the county was awarded grant monies in the summer of 2018 from the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) in the amount of $470,000 for home repairs for low- and very low-income elderly, disabled and special needs Jackson Countians.
Through this project, the county has completed three rehabilitations two rebuilds and is currently in the process of rehabilitating their last home.
Heady explained that two rebuilds would have been too costly to rehabilitate. Both rebuilds cost approximately $123,350.
