Glen Cove, NY, … Glen Cove Community Development Agency (CDA) Chairman, Mayor Tim Tenke, is pleased to announce that the Agency is accepting pre-screening applications for the Residential Rehabilitation Program.  Resident seniors and disabled homeowners can apply for home improvement funds made available through the Residential Rehabilitation Program coordinated by the Glen Cove CDA on behalf of Nassau County Office of Community Development.  Income eligible seniors ages 60+ and disabled persons are encouraged to apply for the program which provides funding for home repairs including energy conservation, code violation remediation, and handicap accommodations.  “Since the reinstatement of this program in 2014, the CDA has been able to fund 11 projects totaling approximately $150,000.00.  Those projects have included roof/siding replacement, boiler/hot water installation, window/door replacement, ramp and chair lifts, and handicap accommodations,” said Mayor Tenke.   “For Glen Cove resident homeowners in need, funding from this program can make a substantial improvement to the quality of their home life and we appreciate the support of Nassau County to make this funding available to our Glen Cove residents,” added Ann Fangmann, CDA Executive Director.

Applicants must be Glen Cove residents who have resided in their current home for more than one year, meet income guidelines, and be up to date in payment of their school and property taxes.  A pre-screening application is available in English and Spanish on the agency’s website – www.glencovecda.org – click on the Programs tab, and then click on Residential Rehabilitation  Application.  Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first serve basis, and funding is limited.
