June is National Homeownership Month, and the State College Community Land Trust is celebrating by spreading the word that affordable homes are available for purchase in the Borough in this week's Helping Hands column in the Centre Daily Times.

The State College Community Land Trust has been awarded a $100,000 grant and a $350,000 construction loan from West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund (WPPSEF) to help fund the construction of an affordable duplex equipped with green energy technology in the Borough of State College. Other key partners are the Borough of State College, the Penn State Hamer Center for Community Design/Energy Efficient Housing Research Group, Centre County Government, and S&T Bank.
Thanks to many individual donors, SCCLT is in the final phase of a fundraising campaign for the GreenBuild project. Envinity, Inc. of State College has been selected to construct the duplex and will partner with Henry Architecture & Design, and Macht Architecture. GreenBuild will benefit not only the people who own the homes, but also will serve as a model for builders, developers, architects and individual homeowners seeking new ways to reduce energy costs.
