$447,000 loan set for renovation plan
Jacqueline H. Rogers, secretary of the Department of Housing and Community Development, announced recently that a $447,000 loan from the Nonprofit Rehabilitation Program will be used to renovate five houses for low-income families in Baltimore.
The money will be used to convert five row houses in West Baltimore to 10 three-bedroom apartments.
Residents will receive federal Section 8 assistance, administered by the Baltimore Public Housing Authority, and pay monthly rents based on 30 percent of their adjusted gross income.
To be eligible to participate in the program, households must have incomes at or below 50 percent of the area median, which ranges from a maximum of $14,200 for an individual to a maximum of $26,750 for a family of eight.
