Gwinnett County Commissioners on Tuesday renewed its federally-funded Neighborhood Stabilization Program, which provides money to buy, rehabilitate and sell foreclosed single-family homes in distressed neighborhoods.
The program, now in its fifth year, has spent $23.8 million in rehabilitating of more than 100 homes and 92 townhomes — or about $124,000 per residence.
This year’s renewal is $500,000, which is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program is expected to be closed out next year. “We’re ramping down,” county spokesman Joe Sorenson said.
A Lawrenceville pastor wants his congregation to know the good news about the Gospel of Mark. Dean Sweetman, senior pastor of the C3 Church, has challenged his members and anyone else interested to read the New Testament book in its entirety over the next year and post Instagram photos of their notes.
