Premier Bank recently announced that Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation and Habitat for Humanity MidOhio have been selected as 2021 Affordable Housing Program award recipients through a partnership with the bank.

Premier Bank helped both agencies secure funding through the Affordable Housing Program for initiatives that provide low- to moderate-income residents and their families access to affordable housing, a news release states.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation will receive $1 million from the AHP for the Youngstown Home Repair Program 2021. The program offers an emergency home repair program to assist residents of owner-occupied, single-family homes with emergency repairs — primarily roof replacements — at no cost to the owners. Applicants must meet certain income eligibility requirements established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio will receive $220,000 from the AHP for the Habitat MidOhio Homeownership Project. The program provides opportunities for central Ohio families to build homes that are safe, decent and affordable.

“As a community bank, we work to provide resources to aid in the development and maintenance of healthy, thriving communities,” Reginald Temple, vice president and director of community development at Premier Bank, said in the release. “We believe that by working together, we can create strong, diverse communities that are able to attract and keep talent, start and grow businesses and overcome issues that arise.”
