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 Housing Authority of Covington will be the developer and the builder is yet to be procured. The architectural drawings are in progress and there will be one and two story designs with two and three bedroom designs.
An informational session for the HOPE VI Homeownership Program will soon be offered. Brighton Center and Catholic Charities are partnering with us to provide their Homebuyer training classes to all famililes interested in the HOPE VI/Phase IV Homeownership Program.
