NeighborImpact needs input
NeighborImpact, in partnership with Central Oregon cities and counties, is applying for federal grant funds to support a regional housing preservation revolving loan program.
To be eligible for the funds, NeighborImpact must demonstrate homeowner interest in loans for home repairs, septic replacement and/or other eligible activities.
In order to help the nonprofit illustrate the community's interest in the program, NeighborImpact is asking eligible community members to add themselves to a program waitlist.

To be eligible for the Home Preservation Loan Program, applicants must:
