City of Statesboro Housing Rehabilitation Program, application deadline June 23

The City of Statesboro received $12,306,220.00 in ARPA funds in 2021 from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and the Statesboro City Council approved the allocation of $5,000,000.00 of those funds to be used to provide relief rehabilitation or replacement housing for low-income homeowner households in the city. .
