Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
As part of its Housing Development Program, KCEOC Community Action Partnership recently finished building a new home for a Knox County resident. Jill House, technical assistance specialist II for Housing Contract Administration, represented KHC at the ribbon cutting ceremony for new homeowner Lenda in Woolum, Kentucky, on February 7, 2017.

KHC allocated $110,000 in HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds, as well as $25,738 of Affordable Housing Trust Fund monies for the construction of several home buyer units.

HOME funds and Trust Fund monies help buyers, like Lenda, realize the dream of owning a home. These are important programs that are invested quality housing solutions for Kentuckians and strengthen our communities.

Other partners contributing to this development project are KCEOC Housing Development Program, Forcht Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, Fahe, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
