SEDA-COG’s Housing Rehabilitation program is expanding their search net for qualified individuals to perform improvements on homes in the City of Shamokin. The search is open by trade sector, seeking electricians, HVAC specialists, general contractors, and plumbers.

General contractor work may primarily include roofing and carpentry related tasks.

Total housing rehabilitation projects typically range from $20,000 to $65,000, with timely payment to contractors.

“The City of Shamokin and SEDA-COG strive to work with regional professionals to invest in the local economy”, said Teri Provost, director of SEDA-COG’s Housing Rehabilitation program.

“Not only do these grant awards benefit the community and homeowners, but the local economy as we seek to work with locals to perform this work,” Provost said.
“Additionally, our work is year-round, so we offer a steady flow of projects,” said Provost.

Interested parties also have the option of meeting one-on-one with SEDA-COG to answer any questions they may have. SEDA-COG streamlines the process for contractors with a rehabilitation specialist assigned to each community.
