Extension Housing Fair Helps Homeowners
The Cooperative Extension Program held its 4th Annual Housing Fair this past spring. Although heavy flooding prevented a large turnout, there were 67 attendees. Nine industry groups were on hand at the fair to educate the public about programs available. Participants found especially useful the information regarding the annual federal income tax credit of up to $2,000 for qualified homebuyers for every year they occupy the home as a primary residence. Useful information can still be obtained from Christopher Cotton, Program Specialist, Community and Economic Development, at 936-261-5107.
