The Ashe County Board of Commissioners Monday approved 2020 Community Development Block Grant funds in the Neighborhood Revitalization Program category.

The Ashe Post and Times reports the funds would be approximately $750,000 and will be used to rehabilitate or replace approximately 4-7 low-income households in Ashe County, depending on the work that needs to be done.

According to the report, the Department of Social Services and representatives from local communities have been accepting applications for the funds, and the county would manage the funds.

There would be five replacements and three repairs, and represent households in Crumpler, Todd, Lansing, Jefferson, West Jefferson and Creston.
