Great Neighborhoods Grant 2019 Informational Meeting
Wellington’s Community Services Department is excited to host a Great Neighborhoods Grant Informational meeting on Wednesday, February 20th at the Wellington Community Center (located at 12150 Forest Hill Blvd) at 6:00 p.m. This meeting is open to all Wellington residents interested in learning more about the Great Neighborhoods Grant. Community Services staff will go over the application process as well as what to expect once an applicant has been approved.
The Great Neighborhoods Grant was created to provide assistance to income-eligible Wellington residents to repair their homes. Assistance is generally limited to a maximum of $15,000 and requires a dollar for dollar match by the applicant. If approved for the grant, the applicant’s match will be collected into an escrow account before work will begin. The Village’s portion will be secured by a five year, forgivable mortgage recorded on the property.
Please note that any work under contract prior to the application is not eligible for funding assistance. If you are interested in applying for the Great Neighborhoods Grant, please call Community Services at 561-791-4796.
