City of Cortland's HOME Funds Fully Committed

The City of Cortland was fortunate to receive 2010 HOME Program funds for housing rehabilitation for owner-occupied dwelling units. The total award amount was $384,000.

The HOME Program was very successful and has generated a waiting list. Working with the City’s Housing Committee, a second City-wide owner-occupied program, this time using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, was sought in August of this year. We anticipate grant announcements will be made in December.

Eligible applicants must own their own home and meet certain income requirements. We will update the City’s website with additional information if 2012 CDBG funds are awarded to the City. This will include a name and telephone number regarding whom to call for an application and program guidelines.
