Workshops for Home Ownership and Against Foreclosure

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the Neighborhood Housing Services of Staten Island is bringing its “Sustainable Together” workshops to Bayonne during the last two weeks of June.  Certified HUD- or Building Performance Institute-led workshops will offer counseling and resources for financial assistance, such as grant programs, financial planning, energy assistance, home maintenance, and other information meant to help prevent foreclosure and promote responsible home ownership.

The workshops are free.  The Home Ownership Seminar will start at 6:30 p.m. on two Tuesdays, June 20 and June 27.  The Foreclosure Seminar will start at 6:30 p.m. on two Tuesdays, June 22 and June 29. Workshops will be held in the City Council Chambers at City Hall at 630 Avenue C.

While workshop counseling is free, residents can sign up with the Starbuyer Program for $50 for one-on-one counseling, with a $50 charge for credit report service that would carry through to time of home purchase.

Residents can visit sustainabletogether.org for more details.
