We at Lincoln County Community Development Corporation are so pleased to receive $10,000 from First National Bank Community Development grant program.The board of directors is pleased that First National Bank has partnered with us in our effort to address affordable housing needs in our community for many years. Well do we understand that it is a partnership that brings about the results that our community needs.
This year's program targets the demolition of condemned houses. Essentially, we will be building new houses, once the condemned properties are removed. We are also offering Owner Occupied Rehab to low-income home owners. Essentially, up to $25,000 will be available to low income homeowners to replace roofs, heating and cooling systems, plumbing systems, electrical systems, replace doors and windows. We will encapsulate lead base paint issues and bring the home to code.
Of course, we continue to offer Home Buyer Education Classes.
We are spearheading efforts to strengthen our community code enforcement laws and also to provide rental inspections.
The First National Bank partnership has helped us do all of these things. Thank you once again for investing in Lincoln County Community Development Corporation and our community. Thank you also for the opportunity to partner with you!
