WOOD CO. (WAOW) -- Wood County received money to provide safe housing for low to moderate income families.

The county received almost $500,000 to help provide money for down payments, fees associated with buying a house and for repairs.

The money comes from the Community Development Block Grant Program.

"The importance of the dollars is really to keep communities and neighborhoods thriving. I think any of us can think about a house in a neighborhood that if it was just fixed up, it'd make for a really nicer neighborhood," President of CAP Services Mary Patoka said.

The money is given as interest free loans and must be paid off in 30 years.
