Housing in the North End
In the North End most housing was constructed between the 1870’s and the 1950’s. We need to maintain and improve our housing to stabilize the residential community and to provide diverse life-cycle housing for residents.
The North End works with NeighborWorks Home Partners to meet the home ownership needs of our neighborhood. NeighborWorks is a full-cycle home ownership center that strengthens communities through supporting stable and successful home ownership. Call 651-292-8710 to get started with any program. Their services include:
Home-buyer Education – one-on-one meetings to review your credit and get ready for a mortgage, and Homestretch workshops to prepare for buying a home.
Home Improvement Funding – help repair and improve your home. Funding includes construction management services. Some programs have no payments required until you move.
Down Payment Assistance – Funds are available to help you purchase a home. Special funds are available for the North End.
Foreclosure Prevention – if you are having trouble making payments, our counselors can help you renegotiate your mortgage.
Land Trust – make buying a home more affordable by taking the cost of the land out of the equation. The Land Trust holds the land while you own the structures on it. The North End has been recently added to this program.
