Housing Trust Fund Money Comes To Wayne County

– From the Office of District 21 State Representative Raymond E. Smith Jr. –

The Board of Directors, of the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, awarded the following organizations that are active in District 21 (Sampson and Wayne Counties) with funds from the Housing Trust Fund to make emergency repairs to homes:

  • Sampson County: $100,000 for 11 homes in Nash and Sampson Counties
  • City of Goldsboro: $100,000 for 12 homes in Wayne County

These repairs will enable veterans, seniors and disabled North Carolinians with very low incomes to continue living safely in their own homes.

A recent policy brief concluded that the Urgent Repair Program can result in Medicaid savings of up to $19 for every $1 invested in the Urgent Repair Program.

The 2019 awards totaled $4.5 million and will finance repairs to 622 homes in 61 counties. The funds help homeowners make emergency repairs to correct safety hazards or to make accessibility modifications.

Rep. Raymond E. Smith
