BridlesideMarch 23, 2017 - County Executive Robert P. Astorino encourages all interested in applying for fair and affordable housing to attend one of the three free informational workshops that will take place in Westchester over the next month.

“These workshops are a great way to understand the fair and affordable housing process and if you are qualified to participate,” said Astorino. “I urge anyone that is interested to attend a free workshop to learn more about these opportunities.”

The three workshops will be held throughout the county:

Informational workshop on fair and affordable homeownership:

  • Monday March 27, 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m, at the Warner Library in Tarrytown
  • Monday, April 7, 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m, at the Yonkers Public Library

Fair and affordable homebuying workshop:

  • Wednesday, March 29, 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.

The workshops are being hosted by the Housing Action Council, a local housing counseling agency certified by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and are designed to explain who is qualified for affordable housing and how the application process works. There is no cost to attend any of the workshops.

Currently, applications are now being accepted for over 30 new, fair and affordable homes in Westchester. These homes are single family properties and condominiums, ranging in size, from one to five bedrooms. All of the homes are in good condition and located in: Bedford, Buchanan, Cortlandt, Harrison, Lewisboro, Mount Pleasant, North Castle, Pelham Manor, Pound Ridge, Somers and Yorktown. Applications for these homes are due by April 24. For more information on these homes, visit the homeseeker Web site
