MidSouth Bank has awarded $7,000 in FHLB SNAP Grant funds to homeowners Jerry and Pamela Cartinez of Zwolle.
The couple used the funds to purchase and install a 4-ton heat and cooling pump and to make other modifications to their home.
Eligible expenditures under the FHLB SNAP program include repair/replacement of a leaking roof; replacement of sheetrock due to rotten, molded or damaged walls; and repairs or installation of a wheel chair ramp and/or modifications to make to the home handicap accessible.
SNAP is not a home improvement program; rather, it is a grant for home repairs, rehabilitation and modifications. Home rehabilitation or modification projects must be structurally necessary, or made for the safety of the special needs resident.
Although funds for 2018 have been exhausted, MidSouth Bank expects to have funding available again in 2019.
