Victorville, Calif. – The City of Victorville has approved $500,000 in HOME Investment Partnership Program funds to finance roof repairs at National Community Renaissance’s Northgate Village community.
The money, approved by the City Council last month, came after National CORE received Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) designation.
“We appreciate the City of Victorville’s support of our mission to transform lives and communities,” said Steve PonTell, President and Chief Executive Officer of National CORE.
Originally built as for-sale condominiums for aerospace workers, Northgate Village was transformed into high-quality affordable apartments by National CORE and the city. The community includes the award-winning After School and Beyond program managed by National CORE’s affiliate, the Hope through Housing Foundation. Northgate also features a state-licensed preschool run by the County of San Bernardino’s Preschool Services Department.
