Site-Built Homes Replaced with New MH

The JeffersonPost reports from Ashe County, North Carolina, the High Country Council of Governments is once again applying for a grant to help low-income residents make much-needed home repairs, and in some cases, replace unlivable homes with new manufactured homes. Since 2002, every three years all NC counties, except Wake and Cumberland, are eligible for a block grant through the North Carolina Division of Community Assistance. Ashe County, in the far northwest corner of the state, is applying for $400,000 for the Scattered Site Housing program to assist low-income homeowners. During the last three-year cycle which ended earlier this year, four county homes that were beyond repair were bulldozed and replaced with manufactured homes. The average for each home, including drilling new wells, grading, installing a new septic system, and set-up was $78,000.
