Attention Moore Elderly: Grant dollars available for emergency home repairs

STATE NEWS — The South Central Tennessee Development District (SCTDD) office wants Moore County citizens over the age of 60 to know about a state program that funds emergency repairs on local properties. The Emergency Repair Program (ERP) is for residents who own their own home, have paid their 2018 property tax, occupy the home as their primary residence, and have a household income below 60 percent of area median income.

The grants can be used to repair roofs, electrical systems, septic tanks, heating and air systems, structural repairs, and to modify a home to make it accessible to the homeowner (ie. wheelchair ramps, etc.). It can not be used for renovation for beautification purpose or to upgrade a home.
