Cornerstone in Uptown Harrisburg is a project designed to eliminate blighted vacant lots, create affordable housing, reduce crime, and create a newfound pride in the community surrounding the Camp Curtin YMCA. We will use the U.S. Federal Poverty Guidelines to determine eligibility for families to be included in this program.
The first phase of the Cornerstone in Uptown Harrisburg Initiative will be the new construction of four 4-bedroom homes for families to pursue for homeownership. Homes will be constructed at Woodbine & Jefferson Streets in Uptown Harrisburg. The goal is to provide affordable housing and a program that will allow low-income families to participate in a comprehensive curriculum that prepares them for homeownership.
TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED INCLUDE:
- Goals, Assets, and Earnings
- Spend, Save, and Invest
- Review Taxes, Manage Risk, and Protect Your Money
- How to Get, Use, and Manage Credit
Virtual (via Zoom!) • Attendance is mandatory for those interested in purchasing a home through the Cornerstone in Uptown Harrisburg Affordable Housing Initiative.
Held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:00 PM • January 12 – January 28, 2021
