DeKalb Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson
On Dec. 8, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved $150,000 in funding, which was appropriated by District 5 Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson, to assist senior citizens in District 5 with critical home repairs. The funding will help to provide roof, HVAC, plumbing or other critical infrastructure repairs.
The program will offer forgivable loans to assist seniors with critical repairs. 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.
“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.
All District 5 Seniors are encouraged to apply for assistance. Applications 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.
