The Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) is moving on up this Friday to a new office and inviting the public to join them to celebrate two major accomplishments.
The Eatontown-based organization will host an open house on June 10 at its new TRUE Energy Assistance Office at 94 Broad Street from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The non-profit organization was awarded a $25 million grant in February by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities in Temporary Relief for Utility Expenses (TRUE) Program funding. The one-time assistance program is intended for those low to middle income state residents who are struggling to pay electric and natural gas bills due to economic hardship.
The housing alliance is also celebrating its new membership in the National Neighbor Works America Network. As a member of this national group, which involved meeting high organizational standards, the AHA will have access to a powerful battery of training, research, technical assistance and funding opportunities.
NeighborWorks America helps to improve homeownership opportunities across the United States for low to moderate income families; provides financial education and improves financial literacy; rebuilds and repairs properties; develops affordable multifamily units; and uses innovative strategies to improve safety and revitalize communities across the nation.
The morning will kick off with a program from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and feature speakers including AHA CEO Donna M. Blaze; AHA Board President Jay Patock; Commissioner of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Joseph Fiordaliso; and Susan Jouard, public affairs and communications for Neighbor Works America Northeast Region. Refreshments will be served.
