Amazing volunteers from Penn State Homecoming helped us to do some spring yard clean up at one of our most recent acquisitions on Saturday, April 6. This crew of 6 hard working ladies had the place looking ship-shape in no time. Thanks, ladies!
Our Real Estate and Rehab Committee has been busy looking at homes to add to the trust. We hope to add one more house to the trust sometime this spring, so that we can prepare it for a new homeowner by the year's end. If you have a home that you are looking to sell, give us a call! We are an easy buyer; no staging and no showing required, and we can also often buy a home that needs some work. Check out our "Sell Us Your Home" page for details, or give us a call!

The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is a vital funding source for our program, our homeowners, and for affordable housing nationwide. But, what is it? More importantly, if you already own your home, why should you care about current proposed changes to this program? Passed in 1977 the CRA sought to encourage banks to meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. As a result of the CRA, federal regulators evaluate the record of each financial institution that receives Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance, and take this information into consideration when approving applications for new bank branches or for mergers or acquisitions.
