CDCLI Weatherization Program Assists Residents!

Ms. Sammartino received 8 new vinyl thermopane windows, weather-stripping around her front door, 2 CO detectors, and attic insulation with new pull-down attic stairs. Antoinette has no more drafts coming through her windows and front door; she can sit comfortably on her couch without a blanket, and is now able to access her attic without a fear of falling thanks to CDCLI’s Weatherization Assistance Program.

CDCLI Helps Family Become First Time Home Buyers

Saul and Jessica Pagan came to CDCLI in 2011 for the Financial Fitness Health & Wealth program, and completed our Home Buyer Education program in 2012. The Pagans spent 3½ years diligently building their credit and paying off all of their debt, and returned to CDCLI’s NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center in 2014 when they were ready to qualify for a mortgage. CDCLI assisted them in obtaining both a down payment subsidy and rehabilitation funds through the New York State Affordable Housing Corporation. The Pagans purchased their first home in May 2015
