25 in 5 Initiative
25 in 5 was Habitat Choptank’s initiative to enable more hardworking families to improve their housing conditions. In response to local need,s 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. Results:
- 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 Dorchester and Talbot counties.
25 in 5 officially ended June 30, 2015. The Habitat Choptank Board of Directors launched its new strategic plan to guide future growth on July 1, 2015. Goals include expanded production for new home ownership and establishment of a Neighborhood Revitalization program. Stay tuned for more information.
