Annual Reports

WCCRC ANNUAL REPORT 2021

WCCRC’s service area covers 955 square miles in 18 towns and 6 villages in southern Schoharie, northern Delaware, and western Greene Counties in the northern Catskill Mountains. Schoharie County: the towns of Blenheim, Broome, Conesville, Fulton, Gilboa, Jefferson, and Summit. Delaware County: the towns of Harpersfield, Kortright, Middletown, Roxbury, and Stamford. Greene County: the towns of Ashland, Halcott, Hunter, Jewett, Lexington, and Prattsville. The Villages are Stamford, Hobart, Fleischmanns and Margaretville in Delaware County and Hunter and Tannersville in Greene County.

Working with Town and Village Supervisors and Boards, we apply for Community Development Block Grant and Affordable Housing Corporation funds for housing rehabilitation or manufactured home replacement. We also apply for service area wide grant funding from other state and federal sources through the Office of Community Renewal, including those for emergency home repairs for seniors and accessibility modifications for disabled residents. 

We are currently managing $2,975,000 in funds which will be spread over three years, bringing an average of nearly one million dollars to our economy each year. Economists state that every dollar brought into a local economy has a multiple of between $1 and $3. Therefore, WCCRC has contributed up to three million dollars to the local economy this year alone!

Our work is done by local contractors; our supplies are purchased locally. We support women and minority owned businesses and fair housing initiatives. 

WCCRC offers Housing and Financial Counseling services, free of charge to all. Certified as a HUD Approved Housing Counseling agency, we are supported by funding from HUD and NYS HOPP. We expect this service will be greatly needed during the coming year.

Our two apartment buildings, commercial storefront, and two senior and disabled apartment complexes are fully rented and well maintained. This provides safe and affordable housing to our communities.
