County Bank recently presented Milford Housing Development Corporation with a $3,000 grant to support its self-help housing program.
MHDC is a nonprofit organization that provides affordable housing solutions to people of modest means.
The self-help housing program was established by USDA Rural Development over 40 years ago, utilizing a sweat equity model.
MHDC is the only agency in Delaware offering the program. It has helped more than 210 families realize their dreams of home ownership. Currently, MHDC’s self-help families average $33,000 in sweat equity per home.
