The Towns of Egremont, Monterey, and Great Barrington are now accepting applications for the FY21 Monterey Regional Community Development Block Grant funded Housing Rehabilitation Program.
The FY21 Program administered by TRI-The Resource Inc is open to year-round homeowners in Monterey, Great Barrington and Egremont whose incomes are at or below eighty (80%) of the area wide median income according to HUD's 2022 Income Guidelines for Berkshire County.
The Program is designed to give income qualified homeowners up to $40,000.00 in the form of a deferred, forgivable, zero interest loan based on Program Guidelines. TRI addresses health and safety repair needs such as roofing, siding, windows, doors, lead paint (homes built prior to 1978 will require a lead paint assessment), heating systems and any other repairs according to Program Guidelines.
