Rebuilding Together Twin Cities accepting homeowner applications for fall project with Marathon Oil Co.

St. Paul--Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and Marathon Oil Co. are partnering for the second year to address critical repair and energy efficiency needs of a qualified, low-income homeowner.

The organizations are seeking qualified homeowners to apply for the program. If selected, the work will be performed by volunteers and done at no cost to the recipient.

Qualified homeowners will reside in and own their home, have homeowners insurance, be at or below 50 percent of the median annual income as determined by HUD, and have someone living in the home that is either elderly (55+), has a disability, or is under the age of 18.

For this project, homeowners must also live in St. Paul Park, Newport or Cottage Grove.

Last October, a team of volunteers from Marathon Oil Co. worked with Rebuilding Together Twin Cities to address critical repair and energy efficiency needs for a single mother of three who is struggling with health issues.

If you think you qualify or know someone that does, please contact Rebuilding Together Twin Cities at (651) 776-4273 or to receive an application, or pick one up at Stone Soup Thrift Shop and Friends in Need Food Shelf. Applications must be completed and returned to Rebuilding Together by June 30.
