ENGLEWOOD — A push is on to help more people become homeowners or buy property in one of the most economically distressed communities in Chicago as a way to stabilize the local economy.
A free workshop at 10 a.m. June 21 in the Community Room at the 7th Police District, 1438 W. 63rd St., will help prospective buyers become property owners in Englewood and West Englewood, say organizers. Registration will take place from 9-9:45 a.m.
A $500 homebuyer grant from the nonprofit Agora Community Services, which is co-sponsoring the event with US Bank and the nonprofits The Monroe Foundation and The Black Star Project, is among the resources available at the workshop.
Home-loan applications will be processed on-site by US Bank and home counseling will also be available, said Otis Monroe III, CEO of The Monroe Foundation.
