WACO, Texas (KWTX) People needing a roof repaired can now apply for help the Waco Community Development Corp.

The group is taking applications for phase two of its project.

The organization plans to fix or possibly replace roofs for free for people who gravely need the help, but can't afford to pay for it themselves

"A lot of them don't have extra money. A lot of people that we are working with are elderly. They don't have any extra money to be able to spend on that,” Mike Stone, executive director of Waco Community Development said.

Applications can be picked up at the Waco Community Development office at 1624 Colcord Ave.

Last year roofs at just more than 20 homes were repaired.
