REBUILDING TOGETHER IN DUTCHESS COUNTY: from the Dutchess County Office for the Aging
Next Saturday, April 26, is National Rebuilding Day, a day when Rebuilding Together Organizations all around the country bring volunteers
and communities together to revitalize the homes of income eligible elderly, disabled and veterans. Rebuilding Together’s Dutchess County
chapter will complete ten projects with the help of over 300 local volunteers.
Their mission is to assure that qualified homeowners live independently
in a warm, safe and dry environment. Planning for these projects takes months of hard work even before the first tool arrives on the job site.
Rebuilding Together is currently accepting applications on a year-round basis for their no cost Handyman Programs as well as Rebuilding Day.
Among the general criteria for application eligibility are:
<>·Income 80% or less of Dutchess median household income
<>·Own and reside in the Dutchess County home seeking repairs
<>·Your mortgage and taxes must be current
<>·You must have homeowner’s insurance
Applications are available online at www.rebuildingtogetherdutchess.org or by calling (845) 454-7310.
Because they accomplish their work through the generosity of volunteers, they are unable to offer services on an emergency basis.
Should you need to speak to the Town Supervisor or a Town Board member, use the contact form on the website or call Town Hall and we will set up a time to meet. Main #: 297-4158 Supervisor: 297-2744
