Access Community Action Agency was awarded $200,000 to re-imagine pathways to homeownership for families in Northeastern Connecticut through partnerships that will bring homeownership counseling services, education and support to Windham County. “In partnership with Habitat for Humanity and the Northeastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce, the Accessing Homeownership Education Center will host financial literacy workshops and homeownership counseling. The Center will also convene regional stakeholders in the real estate, mortgage, banking and housing development sectors to promote collaboration and understanding of the benefits of comprehensive homebuyer education,” noted Access’ Senior Director of Community Engagement Kathleen Krider. “Home ownership promotes wealth building and can improve educational outcomes for children.”
