The Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) and the Phelps County PHA Family Self-Sufficiency Program will host two free homeownership workshops Thursday, Feb. 21.
The workshops are planned:
• In the community room at Vienna Homes on Independence Road in Vienna at 11 a.m., and
• In the community room of Dixon Manor, located at 103 W. Chestnut, Dixon, at 1 p.m.
Dawn Harmon of the Phelps County PHA will present two programs at each workshop – Pay Yourself First and Your Own Home.
The workshops are offered at no cost and registration is not required.
Free training classes are a part of the MRPC and PHA’s efforts to help prepare families who are first-time homebuyers for homeownership and make them aware of the resources available to assist with homeownership.
These workshops are a part of MRPC’s outreach efforts in partnership with senior citizen housing groups and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, which assists with grant funds to renovate senior citizen housing complexes throughout the region.
People needing more information may call Harmon at 573-265-4200 or email dharmon @meramecregion.org.
MRPC provides administration of the Phelps County PHA, which offers rental assistance to very low-income families in Crawford, Dent, Gasconade, Maries, Washington counties, and Phelps County, outside the city of Rolla.
