This is good news. Hope this year none of it is used like last year for the land trusts to use when they have their own funding. Sad to hear because of some of those funds from last year were used by those compines, that waiting list is even longer. To have those that are living in their apt's.(land trusts), fill out forms verifying their low income, they mis-used that information, and taking advantage of that funding.
Guess that's left to be seen...leaking roofs that have lead to mold are still not fixed...etc...

If you're lucky they won't lose your application like they lost my tenant's fuel assistance application. She sat for over an hour providing information and when she heard nothing more by a month later and after half a dozen phone calls actually reached someone, they told her they didn't know what the status or even the location of it was, that they didn't have any records for it.
They are a well meaning organization who has helped a lot of people but I have to wonder how many others fall through the cracks in their organization?

So sad this was started to help so many but in the past few years they have shown that they need to be watched over.( landtrust for starters).
I have also seen in the past people who needed it didn't get the help . Especially in the heating dept.

This is not the Land Trust, and it is for emergency repairs for homeowners not renters.
