UTILITY SERVICE LOCATE NOTICE

News  Release

Grant funds available to assist Sturgeon Lake homeowners to make repairs to their properties
Licensed & Insured local contractors sought to bid on improvements


 

Sturgeon Lake, MN: The City, with assistance from Lakes & Pines Community Action Council, Inc., was awarded grant funds from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) for the Small Cities Development Program (SCDP). These grant funds are to be used to rehabilitate approximately 10 owner-occupied homes (must be of low and moderate income) in the target area of the City of Sturgeon Lake.
 

Grant funds are loaned to individual property owners for 10 years, at which time, if the property is still owned and occupied by the original borrower the funds are forgiven and considered a grant. Eligible improvements can include replacing defective:

Plumbing

•           Heating or electrical systems

•           Roofing

•           Siding,

•           Windows

•           Doors

 

To qualify, applicants must be current with property taxes, mortgage payments, and have proof of current insurance on the property.

Owner-occupied housing rehabilitation: The grant can pay up to 90%, or a maximum of $25,000 towards improvements. The remaining 10% of the total project cost is the responsibility of the property owner, but no household will be denied on the sole basis that they cannot meet this requirement. In addition, applicants must live in Sturgeon Lake, own the home and live in it as their primary residence (land must be taxed as a homesteaded property) and meet 80% of the county area median income limit.

Contractors: Only state licensed and insured contractors will be allowed to perform the improvement work. Local contractors that are interested in being added to the contractor's list which Lakes & Pines distributes to participating property owners should complete the contractor's application and return it to Lakes & Pines.

Applications are available. To request an application, contact the Energy-Housing Department at Lakes & Pines CAC, Inc. at 800-832-6082 or 320-679-1800, by email at nicole.klosner@lakesandpines.org , by mail at 1700 Maple Avenue East, Mora, MN 55051 or on the web at www.lakesandpines.org  (click on Applications).

 

Women, minorities and Section 3 residents and businesses are encouraged to participate.

Broadband Line Extension Connection Program

In the 2022 Legislative Session, the Office of Broadband Development (OBD) was directed to create a new program, the Broadband Line Extension Connection Program. The purpose of the program is to award grants for the extension of existing broadband infrastructure to unserved locations. An unserved location is a location that does not have a wired broadband service of at least 25Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload.

How the program will work

People can report to OBD that a wired broadband service is unavailable at their residence or business by entering information on the online application below or by calling 651-259-7610 and requesting a paper application or by talking to someone at OBD who will complete the application on their behalf.

Visit the Broadband Line Extension Grant Program to learn more and to sign up.
