Rental Housing Supported in Sussex County
On Friday, July 18, 2014, USDA Rural Development State Director, Bill McGowen joined US Senator Tom Carper at the Chandler Heights Community Center in Seaford, Delaware to announce that NCALL will receive a USDA Rural Community Development Initiative grant in the amount of $152,492 to provide technical assistance to two housing corporations based in Sussex County - Better Homes of Seaford and Millsboro Housing for Progress - to further the development and preservation of affordable rental housing. This grant will enable NCALL to package project financing and provide assistance throughout the entire housing development process.
Joe Myer, NCALL's Executive Director, shares: "Both Better Homes of Seaford and Millsboro Housing Progress do rental housing particularly well - assuring quality construction, proper oversight, and a full array of resident services. These apartments are real assets to the communities as decent, affordable housing is such a fundamental, basic need that impacts all aspects of people's lives."
Affordable rental housing is in great demand today, as there are major affordability gaps in today's rental market - $349/month in Sussex County, Delaware - between what housing costs and what people earn and can afford. According to the Delaware Housing Coalition, households in Sussex County must earn $16 per hour, full-time to afford a modest 2-bedroom apartment.
