These programs traditionally serve low-income, elderly and special needs citizens within the County. These programs are typically grant funded and require specialized management to process applications, solicit bids, and manage projects.
Due the specialized nature of the management needed, most of the County’s Community Development work is now managed through the Piedmont Triad Regional Council and the Burlington Community Development Division.

Abandoned Manufactured Home Removal Grant
Through grant funding from the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Alamance County is able to provide financial assistance for the removal and recycling of abandoned manufactured homes. Abandoned manufactured homes may present a public health hazard and negatively impact the aesthetics of the county and its municipalities.
Under this program, owners of abandoned manufactured homes may voluntarily designate a manufactured home as “abandoned” and may be eligible for funding assistance for the removal of the home. Manufactured homes removed under this program are then dismantled and disposed. All materials that are recyclable (metals, etc.) are recycled.
The grant allows up to $1500 per single-wide and $2500 per double-wide manufactured home. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis and will continue until funds are exhausted.
