Program to help property owners make improvements
Residents in southeast or downtown Brainerd interested in improving their property may be able to get assistance through a program sponsored by the Central Minnesota Housing Partnership and the Brainerd Housing and Redevelopment Authority.
A meeting will be 7 p.m. Thursday at Harrison Elementary School to discuss the program geared for a target area in southeast and downtown Brainerd.
Owners of homes or commercial properties or those who rent may apply for a grant and low-interest loans to help with repairs. This program has helped numerous communities in Minnesota.
For more information call Deanna Hemmesch at the CMHP at (320) 259-0393.
Hemmesch said surveys will be sent later this month to property owners in the target area. The survey will determine whether there is enough need and interest to apply for these funds.
