The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency recently recognized the City of Kannapolis for 25 years of working together to improve housing opportunities for residents of the City.

Scott Farmer and Mike Handley presented the City with a plaque, during a ceremony at the residence of Vickie Willis, a recent recipient of an accessibility ramp at her home. Construction of the ramp was thru the partnership with the City and the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency.

Over the last two decades the City and the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency have partnered together to assist over 100 families in Kannapolis. Assistance has included home repairs such as new roofs, construction of handicap ramps and other accessibility modifications to help senior citizens, veterans and people with disabilities.

The repairs have resulted in people being able to stay in their homes with their families versus having to move into institutional settings. These repairs and improvements total over $1 million.

“We appreciate the partnership with the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency. Without their help we would not be able to assist those in our community who need help the most,” commented Kannapolis Mayor Darrell Hinnant.
