During November and December, the Lincoln County Community Development Corporation held a fund raiser for our Home Buyer Education Classes.We receive $2,000 in grant funds through Nebraska Housing Developer Association to hold the homebuyer classes, and these funds must be matched.
Our costs outweigh the grant monies, however.
Because we are an "affordable housing developer," we are mandated to hold Home Buyer Education Classes, and our board of directors does not opt to charge for these classes.
We do thank our partners who help with the classes -- the Nebraska Housing Developer Association, the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and North Platte Community College.
Further, we are grateful to the following who have contributed to this program: Morland Enterprises, Adams Bank & Trust, Western Nebraska Mortgage Association, IC Quality Painting, Inc, Select Carpet & Tile, NebraskaLand National Bank, Wilk Builders LLC, Do-It-Center, AJ Sheet Metal, Edwards Land Surveying, McDermott & Miller PC, Scott Abstract-Title Company of the Plains, State Farm Insurance-Diana Pelps, Weathercraft Company of North Platte, Eric Seacrest, Dr. Tim & Molly O'Holleran, Derek Minshull, Misty Robertson, Appraisal Associates, Rod Christmann Electric Solutions, Inc. and anonymous.
