LOWVILLE — The U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development has granted Snow Belt Housing Co. Inc. $75,000 to assist low-income homeowners in Lewis County with repairs.

The funding, awarded through the Housing Preservation Grant program, may be used for general repairs, weatherization or needed accessibility improvements.

Snow Belt uses the federal funds in conjunction with other funding sources to help cover part or all of the costs of qualifying projects, said Cheryl L. Shenkle-O’Neill, the nonprofit agency’s executive director.

“It allows us to stretch our funds, so we can help more people,” she said.

Ms. Shenkle-O’Neill said her agency was also awarded $48,880 recently through the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance to help homeless individuals cover initial rental expenses, like an initial security deposit and first month’s rent.
