HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership: Building the American Dream

Owning your own home has always been the "American Dream".  A home can provide a sense of family, place and pride.  But finding a home that's affordable can be challenging and understanding how to finance a home can be overwhelming!! Fortunately, the HOPE VI Homeownership Program can help!  The HOPE VI Homeownership Program is especially designed for low-income families who prefer to own their home over renting.

Up to nine new, affordable homes are slated to be built in East Covington by the Fall 2015.  Located on both 10th and Robbins Streets, between Greenup and Prospect Streets, these new, energy efficient homes are made possible thanks to funding from the HUD/HOPE VI Jacob Price Revitalization Grant.  The architectural drawings are completed and there will be one and two story designs with two and three bedroom designs.

Brighton Center and Catholic Charities are partnering with us to provide their Homebuyer training classes to all families interested in the HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership Program.
