Celebrating National NeighborWorks Week - June 4-12, 2016
During National NeighborWorks week, the North Country Housing Council will celebrate our communities and partners in St. Lawrence County, with a week of activities focusing on our mission and providing information to our County residents, nationally recognized as NeighborWorks Week.
During NeighborWorks Week (June 4-12), the North Country Housing Council, Inc. and other NeighborWorks organizations across the country will mobilize tens of thousands of residents, business people and government officials in a week of neighborhood change and awareness. The North Country Housing Council is currently gearing up for grants awarded to rehab and repair homes county wide, with specific grants for owner occupied homes in the Towns of Fowler & Madrid , we will be celebrating new home owners with a Housing Preservation Class and recognizing our contractor partners with an appreciation breakfast. Our staff and banking/real estate partners will be sharing a booth at our local farmer's market in the Canton Park.
St. Lawrence County residents face many economical obstacles, with purchase, home repair and maintenance to their homes. Our goal is to serve as many low to moderate income, owner occupied and first time homebuyer households, as grant money is available, to repair homes and enhance communities with first time homebuyers from our repair and home ownership programs.
Our First Time Homebuyer Program has assisted 21 new households in 2016, in purchasing homes throughout SLC with our CDBG homebuyer grant. We are additionally taking applications for our upcoming $2.1 Million of awarded CDBG grants for Owner Occupied rehabilitation throughout SLC.
