NeighborWorks Week 2019

Save the date! NeighborWorks America and network member organizations across the country will celebrate their communities during the network’s annual NeighborWorks Week from June 1-8. During the week, NeighborWorks member organizations will bring together residents, business people and government officials to transform, strengthen and honor their communities through a variety of events and celebrations.

HDC MidAtlantic, a NeighborWorks network organization, will be hosting a “Preservation Celebration” on June 5 to celebrate the recent completion of a $21 million multi-community renovation which preserved 208 apartments in Dauphin, Lancaster and York Counties. HDC MidAtlantic will also spotlight and celebrate its membership in the NeighborWorks network during the event.

HDC MidAtlantic became a chartered NeighborWorks network member in 2016.  Since then, the organization has received more than $998,000 in flexible grants and awards from NeighborWorks. Most recently, HDC HDC MidAtlantic was awarded a $326,000 grant in April to support its mission and its services including affordable housing and community development activities. In addition, NeighborWorks also provides training opportunities for HDC MidAtlantic board, staff and residents in property management, resident services, resident leadership and other community development areas.

“We could not do what we do without the support of NeighborWorks.  They are a great partner that strengthens HDC MidAtlantic’s capacity to advance our mission providing affordable housing to those in need,” said HDC MidAtlantic President and CEO Dana Hanchin.

The NeighborWorks network is comprised of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations located in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In fiscal year 2018, the NeighborWorks network provided 457,000 housing and counseling services; owned and managed 166,900 rental homes; and created more than 41,100 jobs. The NeighborWorks network was founded and is supported by NeighborWorks America, which creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.

HDC MidAtlantic receives $326,000 from NeighborWorks America in flexible grants

HDC MidAtlantic, a member of the NeighborWorks network, was awarded $326,000 in flexible grants from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, dba NeighborWorks America. Support will be used to advance the organization’s mission and support its services including affordable housing and community development activities.

“We could not do what we do without the support of NeighborWorks.  They are a great partner that strengthens HDC MidAtlantic’s capacity to advance our mission providing affordable housing to those in need,” said HDC MidAtlantic President and CEO Dana Hanchin. “With high quality and safe housing, you can revitalize and stabilize a neighborhood and increase community connection and economic mobility. Housing stability improves the quality of life for individuals, protects lower-income residents from displacement and increases the opportunity for everyone to share in their community’s successes.”

HDC MidAtlantic will use the funds to support organizational strategic planning, preserve affordable housing, and grow resident engagement and leadership initiatives. The support includes a $4,000 grant for resident leaders living at HDC MidAtlantic’s Duke Manor Apartments in Lancaster, PA, to implement programming that connects seniors and youth in the community using outdoor space for recreation, community events and gardening.

NeighborWorks America announced $70 million in grants to its network of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations located around the country. NeighborWorks organizations will use the grants to develop and manage high-quality affordable housing, help consumers set and reach their goals through financial coaching, offer homeownership education and counseling, and revitalize and strengthen communities.

“NeighborWorks America is dedicated to ensuring these grants create opportunities for people to improve their lives and strengthen their communities,” said NeighborWorks America President and CEO Marietta Rodriguez.

In fiscal year 2018, the NeighborWorks network provided 457,000 housing and counseling services; owned and managed 166,900 rental homes; and created more than 41,100 jobs.
