The South Central Development District worked with the city of Tullahoma to obtain a $500,000 HOME grant that will cover the costs of approximately 7-9 projects.
The grants are available to low-income homeowners living in substandard
housing and are used to bring properties up to code compliancy only, not for
beatification purposes. For example, the grant funds would not cover new
windows for beautification but would fund them if the existing windows were
broken or missing. These funds are strictly used to bring the home up to
code. There’s a limit of approximately $60,000 on any given project. If

Applicants for the program must be of low or very low income, defined as
below 80% of the area median income, and must have lived at their property
for at least one year.
