Solano County

Groups seeks applicants for home renovation program

By From page A4 | May 15, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Rebuilding Together Solano County is accepting applications through June 30 for its home rehabilitation program that targets military homeowners in Fairfield, Vacaville, Vallejo and Benicia.

The free services are available to active-duty, reserve or retired, honorably discharged military members or their spouses who own and live in single-family, stick-built homes.

Potential homeowners must be paid up on their mortgages, property taxes and homeowners insurance. They can not own other properties and must meet low-income guidelines for Solano County, which is less than 80 percent of the area median income.

To apply, applicants must call Rebuilding Together Solano County at 580-9360, complete an application and submit it by June 30 to RTSC, P.O. Box 5996, Vallejo, CA 94591. Go to www.rebuildingtogethersolanocounty.org for more information.

The nonprofit is also looking for volunteers to help out at a work day that’s scheduled at the Vallejo Boys and Girls Club at 1 Positive Place. Preparation days are Thursday and Friday and the work day itself starts at 9 a.m. Saturday. The work will include building new garden beds, a new greenhouse and picnic tables, and doing yard work.
