HAC presents free workshops


The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is presenting two free events in our region in August.

"Building Green for Rural Communities" is a day-and-a-half roundtable and tour taking place starting at 2 p.m. Aug. 11.

"Single-Family Housing Development" is a two-day event running Aug. 13-14. Sponsored by HUD, it's open to CHDOs and many CHDO-eligible organizations.

Both events are free and will take place at the Holiday Inn in Holyoke, Mass. HAC is offering up to $500 scholarships to organizations to help with travel and lodging.
