Western Catskills Community Revitalization Council, Inc. (WCCRC) is pleased to announce that they are seeking funds to create a program to replace dilapidated mobile / manufactured homes in the Schoharie County towns of Conesville, Gilboa, and Jefferson. The program is for homeowners of older dilapidated mobile homes who are interested in a mobile home replacement.

General eligibility for this type of program is based on household income, ownership of the property where the existing mobile / manufactured home is located, and condition of the home. The mobile / manufactured home must be the permanent, year-round residence of owners.

WCCRC Executive Director Velga Kundzins encourages community members to get in touch and learn more about the mobile home replacement program. “We need to expand our waiting list to demonstrate to the State that there is a need for this type of program in our communities. These programs can be life-changing for participants, and I urge anyone who is interested in learning more to contact our office immediately.”

WCCRC is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit Rural Preservation Company with a mission to cooperate with local, state and federal governmental and civic bodies in the improvement of housing and other buildings for the primary purpose of revitalizing communities.

If you own a mobile / manufactured home in the Towns of Conesville, Gilboa, or Jefferson and would like to be placed on a waiting list for mobile home replacement or to get more information about programs, please contact WCCRC Housing Counselor Kelly Kiley at 607-652-2823, ext. 106
