Residents near Flight 93 memorial eligible for repair funds

Associated Press

SHANKSVILLE, Pa.  — As many as 200 property owners near the Flight 93 National Memorial in western Pennsylvania will be able to apply for federal funds to repair their homes.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat reports the Redevelopment Authority of Somerset County secured a $500,000 contract with the state Department of Community and Economic Affairs to help income-eligible homeowners address code violations and other maintenance needs through the federally funded HOME investment partnership.

Officials say the repairs normally deal with facade work such as roofs, heating systems, windows and decks.

Eligible residents must meet lower income guidelines outlined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The homes qualified for a preservation grant because the authority demonstrated traffic to the memorial was impacting the area.

The memorial aims to attract 500,000 visitors annually.
