News from the North Country Housing Council

Latest updates from St. Lawrence County Housing Council, Inc.

St. Lawrence County has been awarded $850,000 for housing rehabilitation grants for the second phase of its Countywide Housing Rehabilitation Program (CHRP 2).

 

This award was made under the NYS Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG). "The county expects to be able to assist approximately 22 low-income households with these funds," said County Planning Director Keith Zimmerman. "Assistance will be made available to owner-occupants or to renters. Our rehabilitation goal is to make each housing unit safe, decent, and energy-efficient."

 

North Country Housing Council will deliver the program. They work with the household to develop detailed scopes of work to be completed, and then help the households to get competitive bids from qualified contractors. During rehab, Housing Council staff periodically inspect the work, and authorize payments to contractors only after the householder approves work completed.

The North Country Housing Council is a non-profit organization that exists for the sole purpose of assisting St. Lawrence County residents in a variety of ways. We are not here to sell a product. This website is here to assist, educate and provide you with useful information.

We assist communities and first time home buyers in a variety of ways. Our upcoming classes can help home buyers through the Washington,D.C.– NeighborWorks America, one of the country's largest nonprofit community development corporations today announced that expects its network of nonprofits across the United States will help originate $3 billion of mortgages this year, up from approximately $2.9 billion and $2.8 billion in calendar years, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The forecast comes with mortgage rates consistently hovering near historic lows, underwriting standards slowly opening the door to more qualified low- and moderate-income families, and NeighborWorks organizations expanding marketing and lending products, while increasing operational efficiency.

"NeighborWorks organizations provide consumers with a suite of services from pre and post-purchase homebuyer education, down payment assistance, first mortgage lending products and other home related services, including realty services," said Marietta Rodriguez, vice president of homeownership programs and lending at NeighborWorks America.  "These services help create sustainable homeownership for more than 20,000 families every year – or more than fifty families every single day!"

First-time homebuyers are the majority of the customers helped by NeighborWorks, and these homebuyers often benefit from down payment assistance, an important type of financing that helps low wealth consumers safely and securely achieve homeownership. NeighborWorks encourages more consumers to seek a nonprofit housing organization early in the home buying process, (a resource that many consumers overlook or believe isn't for them) for the process of finding and purchasing a home. We will provide resources and be with you every step of the way.
