The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is pleased to invite you to participate in a webinar on home repair and rehab for rural seniors. Twenty-five percent of all rural households are occupied by the elderly. Of those homes, 80 percent are homeowner rather than rental properties. According to 2009 American Housing Survey data, more than 300,000 homes occupied by rural seniors are moderate or severely substandard. Join us for this webinar to learn more about meeting the needs of rural homeowners with repair and weatherization programs. The agenda will feature discussions on using the USDA Section 504 grant program and leveraging weatherization dollars for senior home repair.
