Fillmore County Development Corporation is working with Hanna:Keelan Associates to do a County-Wide Housing Study. One of the components of the Housing Study is do a Household Survey to determine both present and future housing needs during the next five years.
The following is the website where citizens of Fillmore County are invited and encouraged to fill out a “Household Survey” To go to the survey click here The on-line survey can be answered on line in about 10-15 minutes and needs to be completed by April 1st.
The housing study is funded with a Housing Grant provided by the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority, with matching funds from the Fillmore County Development Corporation who received a grant from the Mary F. Tous Charitable Foundation.
It is important to get a good return on the survey. An updated Housing Study gives communities and the county the ability to apply for funding for Down Payment Assistance and Owner/Occupied Rehab grants which have been used quite extensively the last five years. The study is expected to be completed in August.
