These funds may also be used for energy efficiency, weatherization, and accessibility construction.

Examples of allowable improvements include roofing, siding, windows, doors, insulation, furnaces, and electrical, mechanical, and plumbing updates to meet codes.

Average total construction per unit available is $14,000. If a rental unit is in a building or home where there are multiple units, each unit would qualify for the average construction budget.

There are also target areas in both Starbuck and Osakis that qualify for these funds. If you are interested in learning more about this program, the requirements and the targeted areas, contact Erin Bollan at (320)762-1311.
