The Cumberland County Housing and Redevelopment Authority offers a number of programs for those looking to become homeowners—most notably, a free homebuyers workshop that details the how-tos in taking that big step. Successful completion of the program can save participants plenty when it comes time to finance their home—that’s important to any homeowner, but especially for those just starting out.
Already own a home? Things happen, and the Authority has programs to benefit low and moderate-income households that can assist you in making, for example, needed emergency repairs. Need to update your home to make it easier to get around, or more accessible for a wheelchair? The Authority administers several grant programs that address such ADA needs and can help you enjoy your home, stay in your home, longer.
