LIHBCDC TO BUILD HOMES FOR RETURNING VETERANS
Seeking Applicants for Homes for Vets to be sold at Below-Market Rates
Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau) announces that the Long Island Home Builders Care Development Corp. (LIHBCDC), a charitable arm of the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI), is planning to build a six lot subdivision for returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans on land donated by CA on Motor Parkway in Islandia. Six homes will be developed beginning in late May, with projected delivery to selected vets in November of this year.
“LIHBCDC is seeking suitable applicants for these new homes,” said Hannon. “They’ll be sold to veterans and their families at below full market rate, and LIHBCDC will design the homes to accommodate any special needs, such as wider doors and entrances, larger bathrooms, and other special purposes.”
To qualify, a veteran must be able to procure a mortgage and qualify as a first-time homebuyer. To apply, eligible veterans must write a letter stating their military service, present living status, employment status and how this may impact their lives. It should be sent to Lois Fricke at LIBI by May 1, 2013. All applications are then given to the selection committee consisting of commanders of local, county and state VFWs. Final decisions will be made at the end of May.
To contact Lois Fricke, veterans may call 631-232-2345, and e-mail their letter to email@example.com.
