Purpose: In February 2014, the Towns of Great Barrington and Sheffield submitted a Community Development Block Grant application, seeking funds to provide 0% interest, deferred loans to low and moderate income homeowner-occupants for housing repairs / rehabilitation. Your participation in this survey will help establish the need for these funds. If you have already completed this survey in the past, there is no need to do so again. In July, Great Barrington and Sheffield were awarded CDBG funds for this project. Applications will be available on the towns' websites and the program is expected to begin in November 2014. Please call 413-442-1521 ext. 17 or 32 for more information.
