Building contractors are needed to help perform rehab for low-income homeowners in Okanogan County. Okanogan County Community Action Council is recruiting licensed, bonded and insured contractors for rehabilitation and weatherization projects.

Community Action recently received a $500,000 grant from the Washington Department of Commerce to support the work.

“An important component of community development is engaging our local contractors and vendors in the work we do,” said Lael Duncan, Community Action’s executive director, in encouraging skilled local contractors to apply.

Interested builders should call Community Action at (509) 422-4041 for an application.

There will be a mandatory meeting for contractors on Monday, April 17, at 2 p.m. at Community Action in Okanogan.
