The Mutual Self Help Housing program is administered by the Uintah Basin Association of Governments and applications are now being accepted. The program utilizes a USDA Rural Development Direct Loan for the program participants. A group of 6 families are already underway building in Roosevelt. They are currently pouring foundation and getting ready to start framing on those homes. Those interested in learning more about the spot available in Vernal are invited to call the UBAOG office at 435-722-4518. Applications can be viewed and downloaded from
