Now Accepting Applications for the Housing Preservation Grant Program through July 8, 2019

On Friday, May 24, 2019, The Rural Housing Service (RHS) announced via a publication in the Federal Register that it is soliciting applications under its Housing Preservation Grant (HPG) Program. The HPG Program is a grant program which provides qualified public agencies, private nonprofit organizations, which may include but not be limited to Faith-Based and Community Organizations, and other eligible entities grant funds to assist very low- and low-income homeowners in repairing and rehabilitating their homes in rural areas. In addition, the HPG program assists rental property owners and cooperative housing complexes in repairing and rehabilitating their units if they agree to make such units available to low- and very low-income persons. This action is taken to comply with Agency regulations found in 7 CFR part 1944, subpart N, which require the Agency to announce the opening and closing dates for receipt of preapplications for HPG funds from eligible applicants.

A link to the Notice in the Federal Register can be found at the HPG website:

The closing deadline for receipt of all applications in response to this Notice is July 8, 2019, 5:00 pm local time for each Rural Development State 
Office and 5:00 pm EDT for electronic submissions.

The FY2019 total HPG program funding is $15,888,420.00
