,58 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 19 - June 25, 1998 Angle Moon photo Sussex Realtors donation funds go to Sussex Consortium The Sussex County Association of Realtors recently donated $2,000 to the Sussex Consor- tium's playground fund. The money was raised from the Realtors' annual auction, which is held in October. Shown during the presentation are (l-r) Melanie Farr, auction vice chair- man; Cindy Baker, chairman; Mary Alice DeVane from the consortium; and Susan Mullen, ex- ecutive vice president of the Sussex County Association of Realtors. $1 million now available for low- income home loan qualifiers An additional $1 million is available for working, low-in- come families in rural Delaware who want to buy their own home, according to Jack Walls, state di- rector of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Housing Ser- vice. The Department of Agriculture, NationsBank and the First State Community Loan Fund are work- ing together to increase funding for the low-interest housing loans. "Government and private indus- try are working together to be sure low-interest mortgages are avail- able for lower income families in Delaware," Walls said. "This is an innovative pilot program which runs only through mid-August this year." Under the new program, 50 per- cent of the funds are available through the First State Communi- ty Loan Fund and USDA's Rural Housing Service. NationsBank is matching those funds. Working together, NationsBank and USDA are creating the low-interest loans for low-income families. The in- terest rate on the USDA part of the loan can be as low as 1 percent de- pending on income and family size. "We are proud and excited to be participating in this innovative partnership with USDA Rural De- velopment and the First State Community Loan Fund," said Kevin Loftus, site manager of Dover operations, NationsBank Card Services. "This program holds out the promise and opportunity of home ownership to many low-income, downstate Delawareans and is an- other example of NationsBank's commitment to this community. NCALL (National Council on Agricultural Life & Labor Re- search Fund Inc.) will provide general assistance to the program, including counseling of new homeowners. According to NCALL executive director Joe Myer, "This unique partnership will provide more mortgage credit for rural Delaware, thereby helping fami- lies who are in need of financial assistance and counseling become first-time homebuyers."
