City Council approves grant program administrator

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

On Tuesday night, the Brazil City Council voted to approve a proposal from Indianapolis-based Kenna Consulting to administrate a $300,000 grant awarded to the city to spruce up the residences of low-income homeowners.

Under the agreement, Kenna will coordinate various improvements to 20 or more Brazil homes and receive $60,000, or 20 percent of the grant.

Available through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, the Homeowner Repair and Improvement Grants will average about $13,500 per home and cover repairs ranging from leaky faucets to full-scale electrical upgrades.

Kenna Vice President Angie Pappano said a pool of 20 applicants has already been selected, but more homeowners could benefit if money remains after the selected residences are finished.

Improvements will likely begin this winter, Pappano said.
