25 in 5 Initiative
25 in 5 is Habitat Choptank’s initiative to enable more hardworking families to improve their housing conditions.
In response to this urgent need, Habitat Choptank’s 25 in 5 initiative set the goal of completing 25 homes over a five year period ending 2015. To broaden the scope and impact of the mission, this bold plan was expanded to serve more than 25 families through both energy efficient new home construction and housing repairs.
- 17 new home ownership opportunities were created through a mix of new construction and rehabs. These houses were sold to income qualifying buyers with no-interest 30-year Habitat mortgages.
- 14 weatherization projects were completed through the pilot neighborhood revitalization effort in Dorcester and Talbot counties.
