Home Agreement

The Wood County Commission has renewed its agreement with the City of Parkersburg to provide housing improvements for low-income residents.

This year's agreement, however, isn't just about home improvement.

The city, which oversees the program, will also provide as much as $200,000 in financial help through the Parkersburg Housing Office.

"The new construction units will be for qualified, first-time homebuyers," says city development director Steve Brodsky. "Rather than having to look for an existing house, they will actually be able to move into a new one, and we anticipate doing three new units this year."

The federal funding is actually passed on to a non-profit agency, which helps find qualified homeowners. This is the eighth year for the housing improvement program in Wood County.
