SERCAP’s Housing Department Assists Family of Three (3) as Part of Highway 49 Skipwith CDBG Project in Mecklenburg County, VA!

SERCAP---Hwy-49-Skipwith-CDBG-Project---After

In the Fall of 2016, SERCAP’s Housing Department was awarded the Housing Rehabilitation Specialist Contract for the Highway 49 Skipwith Housing Rehabilitation Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Project in Mecklenburg County, VA. SERCAP’s Housing Team has been diligently working with the community over the past three (3) years, and once the project is fully finished, SERCAP will have completed housing rehabilitation and/or substantial reconstruction for 16 Households (impacting 27 low-to-moderate income individuals).

The project will bring the selected households up to the Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development’s (DHCD) Housing Quality Standards (HQS), improve the beneficiaries’ living conditions, and remove blight from the community. Recently, SERCAP’s Housing Department completed a substantial reconstruction (built a new house) for a low-income family of three (3), as part of the Highway 49 Skipwith CDBG project. The contract was awarded to Harvey’s Enterprise and Sons for an $85,700.00 total
project cost.

Without SERCAP’s Housing Rehabilitation Program, and other similar services, many low-income individuals and communities would be forced to go without such necessities as safe and affordable housing, indoor plumbing, reliable access to clean drinking water, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, other community development and infrastructure needs, and more. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!

*SERCAP’s Housing Program is primarily made possible through the Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development’s (DHCD) Indoor Plumbing & Rehabilitation (IPR) Program, Program Income Funds from the IPR Program, and through County Funds (Budget Appropriations) from counties across the Commonwealth of Virginia. SERCAP’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Projects are contracts awarded by localities that have received CDBG Awards from DHCD. Additionally, all SERCAP’s programs in Virginia are leveraged by a Budget Appropriation from the Virginia General Assembly, which is administered by DHCD.
