Healthy Housing Grant from Rural LISC
LRCD is pleased to announce that we were awarded an $18,000 Healthy Housing grant by Rural LISC through a competitive grant process.
Rural LISC partners with more than 140 rural community-based organizations across the nation, helping them identify challenges and opportunities and delivering the most appropriate support to meet local needs. LRCD has been a Rural LISC partner for well over a decade.
Since 2015, Rural LISC has invested more than $3.8 million in healthy housing by providing 240 grants to 63 community-based partners across rural America. LRCD has benefited from these healthy grants since the program began.
This most recent grant will support the continued efforts of our asset management team to ensure that our older rental properties in the City of Laconia, NH meet healthy housing standards. Our Laconia portfolio includes 29 multi-family buildings that are between 50 to 120 years old, as well as 12 multi-family structures built since 1994.
We are engaged in a multi-year effort to obtain Lead Safe certificates for all the pre-1978 buildings, improve energy efficiency in all these older buildings, and replace carpet with low-VOC vinyl flooring in all buildings to improve indoor air quality.
Thank you to Rural LISC for their continued investment in our work.
