Housing and Energy Department Accomplishments
The City of Lowell uses HOME grant funds to leverage other resources to make a large impact on low income community members and neighborhoods within the City. Below are a few examples of how HOME funds made a difference in the City of Lowell.
During Fiscal Year 2013
- HOME funds were used to assist 19 families with down payment assistance for first time homebuyers in Lowell.
- Two homes were rehabbed to safe and sanitary condition with HOME funds
- With help from the City of Lowell, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Lowell was granted property on Rock Street in Lowell. In October, 2012, HFHGL broke ground at 49-55 Rock Street. HOME funds were used to defer costs for new occupants.
