Brownville, Milo, Orneville, Barnard, and Williamsburg Community Development

February 19, 2007 - TRC

Dear Resident:

The communities of Brownville, Milo, Orneville, Barnard, and Williamsburg are preparing to apply for a Community Development housing program grant. If we are successful, up to $250,000 will be available to this region for housing improvements. We are asking residents to complete this pre-application in order to get a better understanding of the types of needs facing residents and the scope of the interest in this grant program.

We will not know until early spring of this year if our application is successful, and will contact those residents who complete pre-applications if the money becomes available.

The types of improvements affected through a Community Development program include wells, septic systems, heating, roofing, siding, windows, doors or other health , safety, or energy efficiency related repairs.

Thank you for your help and interest in this program. Please call your Town Office or Community Development office if you have any questions.

Brownville 965-8639 * Milo 943-2202 * Community Development 1-800-648-8335
