Families who wish to apply for any of the Authority’s programs must complete an online application. Please note that you MUST have a valid Social Security number AND be age 18 or older to complete an application. The application process involves two phases. The first is the “initial” application for assistance, which results in the family’s placement on the waiting list. The second phase is the “final determination of eligibility,” which occurs when the family reaches the top of the waiting list. At that time, each applicant gets interviewed, and the Authority verifies all eligibility factors. Applications may be submitted online through our website whenever the waiting list is open.
The Redevelopment Authority administers the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, and other state/federal community development programs and serves both the County and City of Lebanon. The Authority also administers the first-time homebuyer program along with several other home rehab/access programs to assist low and moderate-income persons. Ms. Karen Raugh is the Executive Director of the Redevelopment Authority. Staff includes Jody Chernich, Community Development Specialist and Dan Lyons, Programs Director.
