BOWLING GREEN, Mo. — A Missouri agency is seeking homeowners for a do-it-yourself renovation program called Self-Help Housing. NECAC administers the USDA program in Lincoln, Marion, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike, Ralls, Shelby and Warren counties.

Participants must meet income guidelines and work with a NECAC construction supervisor, who will provide one-on-one instruction. Supplies and tools will be purchased by the program, but the labor will be contributed by the families and volunteers.

Applicants may qualify if they make less than the following per year:

  • One-person household, $27,180;
  • two-person, 36,620;
  • three-person, $46,060;
  • four-person, $55,500.

NECAC has been involved with Self-Help Housing since 1999. Call NECAC at 573-324-6622 for more information.
