(Port Chester, NY) ~ Westchester County Legislator Martin Rogowsky (D, WFP-Harrison) is pleased to announce that the county has secured a $70,000 grant through a partnership with the Human Development Services of Westchester to help the Port Chester Neighborhood Preservation Company (PCNPC).  The grant, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, will provide mortgage foreclosure prevention services to qualifying residents.


The Port Chester Neighborhood Preservation Company (PCNPC), a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development approved housing counseling agency since 2008, has served the Port Chester community by providing tenant assistance and advocacy, mortgage foreclosure prevention, eviction prevention, financial literacy, moderate home renovation and rehabilitation to homeowners and housing counseling for low and moderate income households.


“I’m glad that I was able to help Port Chester and PCNPC in obtaining this grant, as this project will help provide much-needed support for those at risk of losing their homes,” said Rogowsky.   The annual funding plan is a joint partnership involving the federal government, the County and the local villages, towns and city governments.
