Amanda Purcell is reporting in The Daily Mail the Catskill Mountain Housing Development Corporation has received $400,000 to replace 12 old mobile homes with new, energy-efficient manufactured, modular or site-built homes. The nonprofit housing agency was one of five in the state to receive the award last week. An applicant to the replacement program must be from Greene County and income qualify; they must own the unit and the property on which the modular home sits. The unit must also be considered in poor condition. The cost to replace a dilapidated manufactured home with a single-wide modular unit is approximately $70,000, Catskill Mountain Housing Development Corporation Executive Director Lawrence Krajeski said. Catskill Mountain Housing helps homeowners with needed repairs and counsels first-time homebuyers, homeowners and tenants on how to resolve housing issues. The agency also manages housing in six locations for seniors and the disabled. Catskill Mountain Housing is open for inquiries about the program at 448 Main Street, Catskill.
