I am excited to be at RCAC and a part of the self-help network. Mutual Self-Help Housing has always been one of my favorite programs. I love everything about it and the impact it has on families, neighborhoods and communities.
Antonio and Erica Rodriguez could not believe it when a friend told them that Self-Help Enterprises was building [a self-help housing neighborhood] in Planada. They were excited and knew this could be their chance at homeownership, at last.
After living in Grand County, Utah for three years, my family and I made the official move to Moab, Utah in 2015. Now, it was a great challenge. We took weeks, actually months, trying to secure housing. Also, in making the move to Moab, I literally was starting over when it came to employment.
USDA Rural Development published an Unnumbered Letter (UL) dated Feb. 25, 2019 changing the way credit will be evaluated and Student Loan Income Based Payments will be handled during FY19. It also emphasizes the previous permanent authorization regarding Oral Verifications of Employment.
Happy holidays! Thank you for helping us this year to create vibrant, healthy and enduring rural communities. To reflect, here are a few highights from past issues of the “Self-Help Builder “that exhibit the dedication and perseverance of the people we serve.
