Note on Date for Voluntary Participation Agreement Form

Posted on September 14, 2020 at 10:10 AM by Nancy McCormick

Homeowners who are completing the "Voluntary Participation Agreement" form should use the date: December 31, 2021.

If the county is successful in its grant application, a required step in the process will be to officially reaffirm homeowner's voluntary participation, which will then replace this document.

For the purposes of the grant application, this agreement exhibits homeowners' willingness to participate, which can be a key consideration during the grant approval process.
