Families eligible for housing assistance

Nearly 70 low-income families will receive housing assistance thanks to several grants, including an $800,000 federal grant, recently obtained by Nevada County, Housing Program Manager Nina Bigley said.

About 47 families will be able to receive help making a down payment on their first home, Bigley said. Low-interest loans of up to $60,000 will be available for qualified families. The loans can only be used to purchase a house that costs under $290,000 that is outside of city limits.

In addition, funds are available to help about 23 families pay deposits and rent for residences outside city limits, Bigley said. The money, approved for each family only once, will be paid directly to the landlord. The deposits will be returned to the county to help other families secure housing.

Income qualifications are:

• One person: $35,600

• Two people: $40,700

• Three people: $45,800

• Four people: $50,900

• Five people: $54,950

• Six people: $59,000
