Middle Spring Estates
IHA built 33 homes through the USDA Self-Help program in this beautiful residential community located close to Shippensburg University in Cumberland County. Several energy-efficient house types were available to choose from, and all featured 3 bedrooms and two baths. The lots are large with plenty of room for swing sets, patios and gardens.
Special thanks to Middle Spring Presbyterian Church for their support to the families during construction.
Located within the city limits of Frederick, the Townhomes at Monocacy Manor offered an affordable homeownership opportunity for working families in an area generally priced out of reach. In addition to the 10 townhomes, IHA built a single-family home specifically designed for someone with physical challenges, but still not ready to move into an assisted living facility. Families displaced by the demolition of the Taney and Hanson public housing apartments as part of the city’s Hope VI program were given first priority to qualify for the new homes which are located in the Spring Valley subdivision close to TJ High School.
IHA worked with Dan Ryan Builders to build a new home for a single father and his daughter in this established residential community close to State Line. Follow their journey at:
In partnership with Dan Ryan Builders and Sandy Spring Bank, IHA constructed 6 side-by-side duplex homes in a diverse and established community consisting of single family homes, townhomes and duplexes. The Rolling Hills neighborhood is located at Lindale Avenue and PA Route 16 in Greencastle, PA. The Rolling Hills Housing Development furthered IHA’s mission by providing affordable housing opportunities to working families. The homes were offered to first-time homebuyers at market prices, but with subsidized mortgages that are forgivable over a period of years. Interest rates were based on income. The 1,606 square foot homes feature three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and a garage.
IHA purchased and renovated several homes on Union Street for sale to first-time buyers as part of the City of Westminster’s Old Town Revitalization Project. By renovating existing homes, the unique character of the neighborhood was maintained. For working families, living within walking distance to employment, shopping, schools and childcare is a time and cost-savings bonus. A Home Buyer’s Club was established for the tenants of the homes to be renovated, where they gained the practical skills necessary to qualify for their first home.
Homeownership Education and Counseling services provide prospective homeowners guidance and support to ensure program qualifications are met. These services include pre- and post-occupancy sessions on budgeting, credit and debt management, and how to save energy and do general home maintenance to minimize expenses. One-on-one and group training and counseling are provided based on the needs of the families.
