The Tri-State Housing Task Force mini-summit held June 19 in Keokuk, Iowa heard Dan Eberhardt of the Southeast Iowa Regional Planning Commission (SEIRPC) say “You cannot thrive unless you pay attention to your residential homes.” Representatives of Northeast Community Action Corporation of Missouri (NECAC) state they have helped over 1,500 people with rehabs, repairs, weatherization, homeowner counseling, and foreclosure modification assistance. NECAC’s Carla Potts says the Housing Task Force Steering Committee has established a program whereby modular homes can be purchased at wholesale prices. As dailygate informs MHProNews, the goal of the task force is to educate local officials about the availability of state and federal workforce housing initiatives and innovative financing resources. The Tri-State Summit area covers 35 counties encompassing 680,000 square miles in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri.

Affordable Modular Homes Available; Applicants’ Credit Lacking

June 17th, 2013 1 comment

The North East Community Action Agency (NECAC) in Hannibal, MO has joined the Next Step Network which gives them the opportunity to buy modular homes from Clayton Homes at 10-15 percent below market price. The goal is to provide low cost housing for people of modest means. Carla Potts, NECAC’s deputy director for housing development, says the homes range in price from $115,000 to $151,000 including delivery to the site, and are highly energy efficient. However, no one in the targeted community has been able to qualify for a mortgage to purchase a modular home since the program began earlier this year. As MHProNews has learned from, while this is an ongoing project with no timeline, there is a shortage of available lots conducive to a modular home, and some subdivisions have restrictions that do not allow modular homes.

September 10th, 2012 Comments off

connecttristates reports a collaborative effort between the North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) of Bowling Green, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky-based Next Step will put low income people in modular homes in the NECAC area. The non-profit works with a variety of other non-profits, businesses, and governmental entities to deliver social service, community health, and affordable housing programs to the disadvantaged and elderly in northeast Missouri. Next Step builds and trains a network of non-profits nationwide to provide access to affordable factory-built housing, while educating home buyers and providing them with fair, fixed-rate mortgages and energy efficient homes for sustainable living. The new modular homes, ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 square feet with major appliances installed, will range in price from $40,000 to $50,000. MHProNews has learned there are no income guidelines for this particular program.
