Chattanooga agency paying for roofs

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 (, 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.
