Mountain T.O.P. is applying for a USDA grant called the Housing Preservation Grant. This grant would give Mountain T.O.P. a sum of money that would be used in Grundy County to do minor and major home repair using volunteer labor. Mountain T.O.P. and the USDA have established a relationship with one another and with many families in Grundy County to make home improvements. Because of the use of volunteer labor, all monies granted are applied toward materials.
This practice allows the money to help more families. Mountain T.O.P. is pursuing this grant in order to help friends and families who may not qualify or loans or grants otherwise.
To qualify for this grant, it is necessary for Mountain T.O.P. to announce the grant’s potential to the area and receive feedback from the community. If you have any comments on whether they should receive the grant, please mail them to Mountain T.O.P. at P.O. Box 128, Altamont, TN 37301, or drop them off at old Hwy 56 in Cumberland Heights.
