CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- About a dozen low-income Chattanooga residents will get new roofs on their homes under a grant program.
According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/PgxzW9), the Chattanooga Community Housing Development Organization is taking applications through Thursday.
Executive Director Roya Evans says the organization will spend about $8,000 to $10,000 on each roof. Twelve to 15 roofs will be selected for replacement, depending on the cost.
Evans said many of the applicants are on fixed incomes under $15,000 a year. She said the applicants have paid off their mortgages, but can't afford repairs.
