Housing Projects Gives 15 Wapato Homes a Makeover

WAPATO, Wash.- Fifteen homes in Wapato are getting a makeover. The city joined together with the Yakima Valley Conference of Governments to apply for federal funds.

Over 500-thousand dollars was awarded to assist in the 2006 housing rehabilitation project. This is the 8th project in the city of Wapato, the first dating back to 1986.

The goal is to assist low-income families with remodeling their homes and to help improve their health and safety needs.

The application deadline for the current project has passed but there's another round in 2007. To pre-qualify:

  • You must own a home in the city of Wapato 
  • You must live in the home you're applying for
  • You must fall within the low to moderate income requirements.
