In 2014 Habitat for Humanity in Newburgh announced they were awarded one of three grants to Habitat affiliates to create live/work housing opportunities for qualifying families who would also like to open up their own business. They have now announced that the first of three homes will be built during a builders blitz June 6-11, 2016.
The target area for this new program is Washington Street, more specifically the empty lot next to the old Habitat headquarters. Habitat has yet to officially announce what the new business will be but they did share a photo on Twitter of the new owner reviewing his plans.
For the remaining two properties, applications are still being accepted from families who qualify for the Habitat Homeownership program and have an existing small/micro business or a solid plan to start one.
