Since February 1, 2019, TRI has successfully reviewed more than 30 projects to make sure that they meet both program and income guidelines. We have utilized all our funds from FY18 and have 28 Projects under construction. Egremont residents are benefiting significantly from the various repairs that our program offers.

EXCITING NEWS for FY19!!!!!!!
Although we have depleted our FY18 Funds, we have been awarded 1.3 Million Dollars in funds for FY19, which means we are accepting applications for an additional 22 Projects!
We are looking forward to continuing assisting our residents and making critical repairs to their homes.

In addition, the income limits for 2019 have increased (by approximately $4500-$8500 depending on your household size).
Each income eligible Unit will qualify for up to Forty Thousand ($40,000.00) dollars' worth of moderate rehabilitation. Moderate rehabilitation includes but is not limited to roofing, siding, heating system and a hot water heater replacement, electrical and plumbing issues; as well as doors, windows and ingress and egress issues.
