Potential homeowners can learn about available loan programs and other information during June’s All Access Columbia session.
The quarterly sessions held by the city’s Community Development department aim to strengthen neighborhoods by providing resources to citizens on topics such as local leadership, financial education and home maintenance. The June 23 session will focus on encouraging home ownership and include details on city home loan programs, do-it-yourself projects and cost-saving home improvement ideas.
The session, to be held at the Busby Street Community Center at 1735 Busby St., will also cover topics such as credit and budgeting management, with representatives from several financial institutions on hand to provide information about the process of pre-qualifying for a home loan.
Registration is available online.
“This All Access event for home ownership will entail some DIY classes. We’ll have some seminars and workshops covering home ownership and homeowner maintenance tips,” Delores Shabazz, housing program manager for the Community Development department, said in a news release. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to get some information, and we look forward to having you there.”
First Citizens Bank, TN Development Corp., Columbia Housing Development Corp., State Farm Insurance, Assurance Insurance, and First Community Bank are event sponsors. Representatives of those organizations, along with other vendors, are expected to attend.
