SERCAP’s Housing Department Assists Low-Income Family of Three as Part of Dillwyn CDBG Project in Buckingham County, VA!

In the Spring of 2018, SERCAP’s Housing Department was awarded the Rehabilitation Specialist Services Contract for the Town of Dillwyn Rehabilitation Project, a CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) Construction Improvement Grant (CIG) project in Buckingham County, VA. Over the past 18 months, SERCAP’s Housing Team has been diligently working with the community to oversee the rehabilitation and/or substantial reconstruction of the designated properties selected for this project. Once the project is finished, SERCAP will have completed housing rehabilitation and/or substantial reconstruction for six (6) Households in the Town of Dillwyn.

The project will bring the selected households up to the Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development’s (DHCD) Housing Quality Standards (HQS), improve the beneficiaries’ living conditions, and remove blight from the community. Most recently, SERCAP’s Housing Department completed the substantial reconstruction (built a new house) for a low-income family of three (3), as part of the Town of Dillwyn Rehabilitation project. The contract was awarded to Coles Construction for a $79,000.00 total project cost.

Without SERCAP’s Housing Rehabilitation Program, and other similar services, many low-income individuals and communities would be forced to go without such necessities as safe and affordable housing, indoor plumbing, reliable access to clean drinking water, water/wastewater infrastructure solutions, other community development and infrastructure needs, and more. It is important to remember that even in the US in the 21st Century; there are those who do not have reliable access to clean, safe drinking water, environmentally sound septic facilities, and affordable housing. In order to help SERCAP continue to provide assistance to both the individuals and communities in need, please consider making a donation to SERCAP’s Water Life! Fund!

*SERCAP’s Housing Program is primarily made possible through the Virginia Department of Housing & Community Development’s (DHCD) Indoor Plumbing & Rehabilitation (IPR) Program, Program Income Funds from the IPR Program, and through County Funds (Budget Appropriations) from counties across the Commonwealth of Virginia. SERCAP’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Projects are contracts awarded by localities that have received CDBG Awards from DHCD. Additionally, all SERCAP’s programs in Virginia are leveraged by a Budget Appropriation from the Virginia General Assembly, which is administered by DHCD.
