HANC up for National Excellence Award

The Housing Authority of Northumberland County is in the running for a national award honoring superior assisted housing and community development programs. HANC has been nominated for its Roosevelt Court housing center.

HANC's nomination for a 2003 Award of Excellence comes from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Office (NAHRO). HANC has already won an NAHRO Award of Merit, which will be presented later this summer. The Award of Merit jury nominated HANC for the 2003 Award of Excellence, due to be presented by NAHRO later this year.

Roosevelt Court, which is also home to an education center used by Luzerne County Community College, is the result of renovations to the former Kulpmont Elementary School. After obtaining the building from the Kulpmont School District, HANC turned the vacant school into the site of 18 housing units for elderly residents as well as a local campus for the Luzerne County Community College Nursing Program.

Addressing two essential community needs in a creative fashion such as this made the Roosevelt Court project unique and innovative. "Programs like these set standards that are worthy models for the public and private sectors," said NAHRO President Kurt Creager. "NAHRO is proud of its members, who consistently go the extra mile in providing service for residents and their communities."
