Pine County Building Rehab Program Now Open

From Pine County:


"Pine County has dedicated some of its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to help alleviate the negative economic impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on Pine County residents, landlords and businesses. These funds can be used to make repairs to homes, rental units, and commercial buildings to make them safe & healthy. This includes repairing or replacing plumbing, heating, ventilation or electrical systems; roofing, siding, windows, and doors; ramps and accessibility conversions; exterior signage & lighting improvements; code violation corrections; energy improvements, and water & sewer.


Lakes & Pines Community Action Council, Inc. is administering the program for Pine County. A link to the electronic application package can be found on the County’s website at: co.pine.mn.us, or for printed paper versions please contact Lakes &Pines Community Action Council, Inc. at 800-832-6082 or email lap@lakesandpines.org.


To be eligible for funding, the applicant must provide proof of ownership of a property in Pine County, proof of sufficient property & liability insurance, be current on taxes, utilities, and mortgage payments, and show proof of the negative economic impact COVID had on their business, rental income or household. Commercial building/property owners must have a building which is used and zoned for business purposes and occupied by a business. Rental properties must not charge more than the Fair Market Rent rate established by HUD for Pine County and cannot displace residents by increasing rents after the project. Homeowners must make less than 80% of the area median income, however preference will be given to applicants who live outside areas already served by other rehabilitation programs (Small Cities Development Program or Federal Home Loan Bank), and/or those who make less than 50% of the area median income, and/or those who have a member in

their household with a disability. For more information on the Pine County Building Rehabilitation
