On Tuesday, September 26 2023, The League of Women Voters of Jefferson County of WV in partnership with NAACP of Jefferson County, hosted a community forum on Affordable Housing Programs.
The average price of owning a home in Jefferson County WV is over $300,000. There is great concern that too many people in our community cannot hope to afford to afford a home at these prices. A panel of experts who specialize in providing loans and grants to people seeking to buy their first home, or need help with their current home or rent, presented information on grants, low interest loans, help for security deposits, help on down payments and other ways to assist people looking for a place to live.
Our panelist were:
Jon Rogers, West Virginia Housing Development Fund
Gail Moxey, CNB Bank and member of the Home Consortium Council of the Eastern Panhandle
Maggie Garrido-Cortes, Housing Program Coordinator at Telamon, a community action agency.
Forum host was Lyn Widmyer, League of Women Voters of Jefferson County, WV - 1st Vice President
