Grant Helps Fix Your House For Free
Fixing your house for free.
That's what the Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County wants to do.
And in Fairview, local homeowner Shirley Faulkner couldn't be happier.
Confined to this wheelchair for the past several years, Faulkner was approved for a grant that she used to have a ramp built about 13 months ago. And it ended up saving her life the very next day.
"I could hardly breathe so I had to call the ambulance to come and get me and so they used the ramp," she said. "Thank god for the ramp and the people that built it."
Faulkner is one of many homeowners seeing the benefits of a housing repair grant from the Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County. To qualify you have to live in certain sections of Williamson County and you must make less than 50 percent of the area's median income.
"For a family of four, that's $33,450; for a family of one that's $23,450," said Keith Rieckmann of the Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County. "There's three areas of Williamson County that don't qualify and that's Spring Hill, Brentwood and Franklin."
To apply, call the Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County at 615-790-5556.
