IHA’s Housing Matters program is designed to expand upon the supportive services being offered to our residents as well as the community at large, to provide the information and resources necessary to strengthen the financial stability of the entire community and to achieve lasting and positive change for the program’s participants.
IHA’s Housing Matters program has 3 main components:
Affordable Housing – IHA provides safe and affordable homeownership and rental housing opportunities and supportive services to seniors, working families and individuals who earn 60% or less than the Area Median Income.
Financial Education – IHA provides group and one-on-one training in budgeting and personal financial management strategies for seniors, families (including their children) and individuals, as well as the target population of the agencies with whom we have developed collaborative partnerships.
Housing Counseling – IHA provides training and counseling on navigating the home buying process, credit and debt management, and foreclosure prevention strategies.
IHA’s Housing Matters program is supported in part through grants from The United Way of Frederick County, PNC Bank, M&T Bank, Rotary Club of Carroll Creek, The Community Foundation of Frederick County and Frederick County Bank.
