DeKalb Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson gives gift of home repairs for District 5 seniors – On Common Ground News – 24/7 local news

DECATUR—DeKalb County District 5 Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson is encouraging needy seniors in her district to apply for critical home infrastructure repairs.

“No senior should have to live in a home that has a cracking roof, leaking pipes or a faulty HVAC system – especially during this winter,” Commissioner Davis Johnson said.

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved $150,000 in funding, which was appropriated by Davis Johnson to provide roof, HVAC, plumbing or other critical infrastructure repairs to seniors in District 5.

The program will offer forgivable loans to assist seniors. To be eligible, applicants must be at least 62 years of age, own DeKalb County property in District 5 that serves as their primary residence and satisfy income and other eligibility requirements.

Applications for District 5 seniors will open Monday, Dec. 14, online at www.commissionermeredajohnson.com .

Residents may also apply or receive more information on eligibility or questions about the program by calling the Office of Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson at 404-371-2159.
