LOW INCOME FAMILY EMPOWERMENT AND THE ADAMS COUNTY HOUSING AUTHORITY ARE AWARDED A GRANT FROM STATE FARM TO EXPAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING EDUCATION IN ADAMS COUNTY

COMMERCE CITY, CO, MARCH 5, 2013. Low Income Family Empowerment (LIFE) and the Adams County Housing Authority (ACHA) recently received a $10,000 grant from State Farm.  This grant will help further the Housing Authority’s goal to empower people and strengthen communities by expanding the Homeownership Opportunities Program to serve the increasingly diverse low-income population of Adams County.  Through this grant, ACHA will now offer its Homeownership workshops in both English and Spanish.

“Through LIFE, the Housing Authority is expanding programs and pursuing exciting new partnerships such as this one with State Farm, to better meet the housing needs of Adams County residents,” said Chris Shaffner, Chief Operating Officer at ACHA. “With State Farm’s support, we’ll have the ability to provide critical homebuyer education and personalized one-on-one housing counseling to more than 200 low-income families.”

LIFE and ACHA work together to address the self-sufficiency and housing needs of low-income individuals and families.  To learn more about ACHA’s housing programs visit www.adamscountyhousing.com
