JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Additional funding could soon be allocated to help homeowners improve property in the City of Jamestown.

On Monday night Jamestown City Council members reviewed details of a homeowner grant which will be administered by the Jamestown Department of Development.

Funding was allocated last year, but administration of the American Rescue Plan Act funding was not rolled out until now.

“There’s still a ten percent match requirement for homeowners to apply, it’s up to $2,500 dollars in either direct payment to a contractor, or they can pay for it and then they’ll get a rebate,” explained  Director of Development Crystal Surdyk. “We gave council the draft to review and give us any feedback they might have just to make sure it’s still in alignment with how they foresaw what they wanted out of the grant.”

Two similar programs to help fix up the city’s housing stock were also previously funded with ARPA dollars, including to address zombie properties and help develop senior housing.
