Nearly one-third of the seats on the Armstrong County Non-Profit Housing Corporation remain vacant.

Despite reappointing two longterm members to the county group, Armstrong County commissioners still need to fill two of seven seats on its board, according to Carmen Johnson, assistant director of the county's Department of Planning and Development.

The commissioners reappointed Commissioner Bob Bower of Kittanning and David Page of Worthington to the board in a 2-0 vote, with Bower abstaining. Each plans to serve a five-year term.

Bower, who serves as the corporation's secretary, has been a member of the board for 26 years, while Page has served for 10 years, Johnson said.

The corporation provides grants for rehabilitating homes for property owners who meet certain income or disability requirements, Bower said.

The corporation's board works through the county's Department of Planning and Development to issue and administer the grants and review and approve applications for grants, Johnson added.

“They also review applications for new housing throughout the county,” Johnson said.

The Non-Profit Housing Corporation meets the second Thursday of each month at 5:15 p.m. in the Department of Planning and Development building's conference room, 402 Market St., Kittanning.

Anyone interested in volunteering for a seat on the Non-Profit Housing Corporation should send a letter of interest to the Armstrong County Commissioners' office in the Courthouse Administration Building, 450 East Market St., Suite 200, Kittanning, PA 16201.
