Low-income homeowners living in Kingston, Rockwood and the unincorporated areas of Roane County will have the opportunity to spruce up their homes, thanks to HOME grants awarded by the Tennessee Housing Development Agency.
Each government entity will receive $250,000 toward repairs.
“Anytime we can get a grant to help people rehab their homes, it’s good,” Kingston Mayor Tim Neal said. “It’s good for the city, and it’s good for the citizens.”
The $750,000 total is the maximum THDA can allocate in one county.
