A federal housing assistance grant is helping to improve a few things around Geneva County.
A half-million dollar community development block grant is helping low income homeowners perform necessary repairs, and it's all being used to pave two dirt roads in the city.
One resident is even getting a brand new mobile home to replace her 60 year termite infested home.
Federal officials say the replacement is simply, more cost effective.
CDBG grant recipient Betty Rose Minnifield said, "This is a blessing. We need this in our community. I don't have the money to renovate."
To qualify for the housing grant, the homeowner is required to pay ten percent of the total cost of repairs.
