MORE HUD FUNDING COMING TO NEW HAMPSHIRE AGENCIES

by Christian Mower on March 27, 2012

THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT IS SENDING NEARLY $170,000 IN HOUSING GRANTS TO FOUR ORGANIZATIONS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSING FINANCE AUTHORITY IS GETTING $104,000 – WHILE AFFORDABLE HOUSING, EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT – OR “AHEAD” – OF LITTLETON WILL GET ABOUT $22,000.

MATTHEW MANNING – WHO RUNS THE HOME OWNERSHIP CENTER AT “AHEAD” – SAYS THE MONEY WILL BE USED FOR EDUCATION EFFORTS FOR CUSTOMERS IN CARROLL, COOS AND GRAFTON COUNTIES.

HIS AGENCY ALSO OFFERS COUNSELING BY PHONE TO ALL RESIDENTS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.

HUD SAYS $29 MILLION IS BEING AWARDED TO NATIONAL, REGIONAL AND MULTI-STATE COUNSELING AGENCIES THAT MAY ALSO IMPACT NEW HAMPSHIRE TOWNS.

MANNING ENCOURAGES NEW HAMPSHIRE HOMEOWNERS TO CALL HIS AGENCY – EVEN IF THEY’RE EXPERIENCING FINANCIAL DISTRESS – TO LEARN WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE TO THEM.

HE SAYS THE GOAL IS TO DESIGN A PLAN TO KEEP PEOPLE IN THEIR HOMES – BUT IF THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE, TO PROVIDE AS “SOFT A LANDING” AS POSSIBLE.

THE NUMBER FOR “AHEAD” IS (603) 444-1377.
