Canarsie homeowner receives nearly $50K in repairs as part of Housing Preservation and Development program
A homeowner from Canarsie received nearly $50,000 in home repairs as part of a renovation program by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
Cathie Wright-Lewis says the upgrades to her home kept her from moving.
"My kids are older now, so I was thinking I don't know, maybe I'll sell," Wright-Lewis say. "It's a whole lot of work, but they made it a whole lot easier, so I think I'm going to stay around for a while."
Kim Darga, of Department of Housing Preservation and Development, says, "There was a need for a housing repair program in New York City that could help lower income households maintain their financial stability."
