On Tuesday, August 30, the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation was awarded a $26,640 Comprehensive Housing Counseling grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Program empowers low- to moderate-income residents to identify and overcome barriers to homeownership, including inadequate savings, income, credit history, and understanding of the home buying process, and prepare them for future homeownership; and to provide existing low- to moderate-income homeowners with resources to maximize their limited incomes and minimize repair costs so that they can avoid foreclosure and improve their living conditions.
