Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation and Nantahala Health Foundation, with support from Dogwood Health Trust, are pleased to announce that five regional nonprofit agencies and two government units have been awarded grant funds to aid in their efforts to address the home repair needs for low-income homeowners throughout far Western North Carolina.

Agencies selected to receive Healthy Homes Initiative funding are:

The collaborative Healthy Homes Initiative is a targeted effort designed to assist individuals at or below 60% of the area median income with home repair needs that directly impact their health and safety. In addition to affordability, multiple factors can align to create barriers for low-income homeowners to undertake repairs necessary to maintain the safety and health of their home’s occupants.

Elderly homeowners, for example, may require specific modifications to ensure they can safely age in their homes, while other modifications may be needed to address occupants’ physical challenges or disabilities.

If you or someone you know is in need of home repair services, please get in touch with one of these agencies to learn more about eligibility requirements. Home repair and modification projects associated with this grant cycle are anticipated to be completed by September 2023.
