Applications are being accepted for the city of Mankato's owner-occupied housing rehabilitation program for homeowners to help enhance their properties. Funding is for low to moderate income families in Lincoln, Washington, Sibley, Germania and Tourtellotte parks and Mankato's hilltop area. Funds are available on a first come, first serve basis and will continue to be available until they are gone. See program information and application packet online.

Funds are provided as zero percent interest deferred loans and can be used for new siding, windows, roofs, furnaces, handicap accessibility needs and necessary interior improvements. No payments are required unless home is sold or use of property changes within 10 years. This program aligns with the city's strategic plan to invest in needed areas and to promote a healthy, safe and livable community.

For more information, contact staff at 507-387-8638.
