Learn more about West Virginia Property Rescue Initiative

A workshop scheduled at WVU Tech in Montgomery in October will provide information for communities looking to access funding to demolish or acquire dilapidated buildings.
Staff from the West Virginia Housing Development Fund and other property development experts from around the state will provide information on the new Property Rescue Initiative, which will allocate $1 million per year over the next five years for a revolving loan program available to municipalities and counties to acquire and/or remove dilapidated properties from their communities.

In addition to loan funding, the Property Rescue Initiative provides technical assistance in the form of workshops, including this event in Montgomery, and consultations to prepare communities for the loan application process.

The workshop is free and open to the public. The focus of the workshop will be on the region covering Kanawha, Boone, Fayette, Clay and Lincoln counties, and municipal staff and community members from these areas are especially encouraged to attend.

When: Oct. 9, 2015, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Where: WVU Tech, Tech Center Ballroom, Montgomery, WV
