Nonprofit adds affordable housing

On Monday, December 21, two new, permanently affordable homes arrived on Woodycrest Street in Patton Township for nonprofit, Centre County Housing and Land Trust. Thank you to Mallory Lane of WJAC-TV for interviewing Executive Director Rachel Fawcett and sharing the report below.

A lack of affordable housing has been a long-standing issue in Centre County.

With the closure of several mobile home parks and other affordable housing units in the State College area in recent years, the topic remains a top priority for agencies working with those families in need.

Now, Centre County Housing and Land Trust is hoping to make a dent in the problem with a new project in State College.

They’re adding two modular homes to the Thompson Place development on Woodycrest Street off of North Atherton Street.

The homes will serve as affordable housing units for income-eligible households to buy. The homes will go on the market for $167,000.

To learn more about the project or to learn if you qualify to apply to buy, visit the CCHLT website.
