USDA Organizes Informative Events on How Homeowners Can Apply for Construction and Repair Grants

USDA's Upcoming Events Assist Homeowners in Applying for Repair and Construction Funds

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is extending an open invitation to the general public for a series of open house events taking place across Utah in the coming week. The purpose of these gatherings is to offer one-on-one interaction with USDA staff members, who are equipped to help homeowners navigate the application process for funding assistance for new home construction, renovation projects, and rehabilitation of older residences.

Michele Weaver, the USDA state director, emphasizes the value of these open houses. “Quite often, potential applicants may underestimate their eligibility for these programs. These open houses provide an excellent opportunity to discuss their circumstances with knowledgeable professionals who can guide them through the complexities of the application process, ensure accurate information, and demystify the procedures involved,” she explained.

While the primary focus of these open houses will be homeownership, Weaver pointed out that the USDA administers more than 70 programs encompassing a wide range of areas, including utilities like water and electricity, internet connectivity, and economic development, among others. Attendees at the open houses will have the opportunity to ask questions about these initiatives and explore how they may be of benefit to them.

Weaver reiterates that these open house events are intended to reinforce the perception of USDA as a key resource for homeowners. She encourages everyone who thinks they may not qualify to attend the open house. “You may be surprised,” Weaver suggests, “It’s an opportunity to have a face-to-face discussion with our friendly, open, and experienced staff who are ready and willing to address all questions that you may have.”

Details of the OPEN HOUSE are as follows:

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, 2023. The open house will be hosted at the following USDA Rural Development field offices:

  1. 80 N 500 W, Suite 2, Vernal: Two sessions from 9am – 11am and 12pm – 3pm
  2. 1860 N 100 E, North Logan: Open from 1pm – 3pm
  3. 340 N 600 E, Richfield: Open from 1pm – 3pm

This is a golden opportunity for Utah homeowners and potential homeowners to explore avenues of support and funding available to them for various construction, renovation, and rehabilitation projects. Come, learn, and make the most of this unique chance to connect with USDA officials directly.
