The Housing Fund and Mayor Karl Dean on Tuesday rolled details of a plan to help home- and business owners who will need flood-related assistance beyond federal disaster aid and Small Business Administration loans. Regions Bank on Tuesday said it will give $1 million for the effort.
Metro officials are using a three-tiered approach to determine the type of aid available for a flood victim: First, applicants will be offered a 4 percent interest loan, worth up to $100,000, to be paid back from five to 20 years. If an owner cannot repay a loan, a grant capped at $10,000 would be offered. If a gap still remains after the grant, then a 0 percent interest loan worth up to $20,000 is available to some homeowners.
