Washington, DC — Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) today is announcing a grant of $21,355 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC) to support home ownership in the Mahoning Valley and providing resources for financial stability and improved housing conditions.
"I am pleased to see this federal investment to support those with limited resources in our community maintain and improve their homes,” said Congressman Tim Ryan. “Home ownership is a bedrock of the American Dream and YNDC has made a commitment to making home ownership a reality for those who otherwise may not be able to do so.”
“YNDC is grateful for HUD's support of our free Housing Counseling program which allows us to continue providing this critical service empowering Mahoning Valley residents to obtain and maintain quality affordable housing and financial stability,” said Ian Beniston, the Executive Director of YNDC.
The purpose of HUD Housing Counseling Services is to provide funds to HUD approved housing counseling agencies in supporting tenants and homeowners with respect to property maintenance, financial management, and literacy. The goals of the program are to assist program clients in improving their housing conditions, meeting their financial needs, and fulfilling the responsibilities of homeownership.
