Marion, Housing Fund partner to offer housing rehab program


The City of Marion has partnered with the Housing Fund for Linn County to provide an owner-occupied housing rehab program for Marion residents.

Using American Rescue Plan Act funding, the program can assist income-qualified Marion homeowners with up to $20,000 in project-related costs, with additional funding possible. Both interior and exterior repairs are eligible.

These program requirements apply:

  • Applicant must be the homeowner and own the property on which the home sits.
  • The home must be located within the City of Marion.
  • The home must be owner-occupied.
  • The household’s annual gross income must be at or below 80% of the Area Median Income, which is $75,700 for a family of four.
