TICONDEROGA - PRIDE of Ticonderoga has completed all New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal requirements and is certified to continue as a Rural Preservation Company for the three-year contract period.
PRIDE was one of nine rural preservation companies to receive the certification to date out of 218 companies in the state.
"What this means to PRIDE is that our administrative house is in excellent shape and qualifies us to receive annual funding support from DHCR and to continue to administer grants such as the HOME, New York Main Street, RESTORE and other grants to the Ticonderoga and Whitehall communities," said Sharon Reynolds, PRIDE executive director.
Beginning in January, PRIDE will conduct an intensive needs assessment in the areas of housing, historic preservation, service-learning, and community renewal for the purpose of producing a three-year strategic plan.
Individuals representing organizations and constituencies within these areas along with the board of directors and staff will be actively involved with the needs assessment process.
PRIDE of Ticonderoga is a non-profit organization established in 1984 for the purpose of connecting the community through housing restoration, downtown revitalization, and youth-driven programs.
