IMG_2397

WHAT: Dauphin County and Middletown officials will join Tri-County Housing Development Corporation in celebrating the sale of a fully rehabilitated, two-story home in Middletown to a family. The property had been abandoned and donated to the Tri-County Housing Development Corporation (HDC) by Middletown Borough.

The three-bedroom home features 1.5 baths, second-floor laundry, living room, dining room, gallery kitchen, a deck and other amenities. The home rehabilitation was funded through the Federal CDBG-HOME program, which the county receives as a participating jurisdiction.

As a certified Community Housing Development Organization, Tri-County HDC is designated by the county and receives a portion of these funds. Tri-County HDC was created in 1990 to address the unmet need for affordable housing in Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry counties to promote and develop affordable housing for low-moderate income individuals and families.

Not only do these rehabilitation projects offer high-quality and affordable homes, but they also contribute to the ongoing revitalization in neighborhoods throughout Dauphin County.
