Mt. Airy CDC has been awarded a grant of $20,000 from the Wells Fargo Foundation toward our housing program. A cornerstone of our work, the Housing Counseling Program helps strengthen the neighborhood by providing education and assistance to low- and moderate-income clients in buying their first homes, and to existing homeowners in staying in their homes over the long term.
Our goal is to turn clients into successful homeowners by educating them about the home buying process, helping them develop a detailed work plan, assisting with setting up a tax agreement, and providing access to financial resources for home repair, maintenance, and emergency mortgage assistance. Our program also helps boost the financial savvy of homebuyers by helping them avoid predatory loans and repair damaged credit.
This grant will help us expand our services to more homebuyers and homeowners in need of assistance and support. Thank you, Wells Fargo, for helping us accomplish this critical work in the community!
