connecttristates reports a collaborative effort between the North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) of Bowling Green, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky-based Next Step will put low income people in modular homes in the NECAC area. The non-profit works with a variety of other non-profits, businesses, and governmental entities to deliver social service, community health, and affordable housing programs to the disadvantaged and elderly in northeast Missouri. Next Step builds and trains a network of non-profits nationwide to provide access to affordable factory-built housing, while educating home buyers and providing them with fair, fixed-rate mortgages and energy efficient homes for sustainable living. The new modular homes, ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 square feet with major appliances installed, will range in price from $40,000 to $50,000. MHProNews has learned there are no income guidelines for this particular program.
