Grant helps YNDC tackle roofing issues in Youngstown - WKBN


Every family wants to be safe and warm all year round, but without a proper roof, some families are left without that protection.

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) is using a grant to help with this need.

YNDC received a grant for $1 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank, with help from Premier Bank, to help replace the 800-plus roofs in the city that need repair.

Tiffany Sokol, with YNDC, said this grant is going to go a long way.

“In a typical year, we get about a third of that amount to replace roofs in the city for our roofing program, and so this money, this $1 million is in addition,” she said.

She said it could make a big dent. YNDC says they’re going from repairing around 35 to 50 roofs to at least 100 roofs with this funding.
