ECSU Community Development Program

The Community Development Program operates a home repair assistance project for low-and moderate-income homeowners in Elizabeth City and surrounding communities. Primary consideration is given to homes occupied by the elderly (65 years of age and older) or disabled, and residents with incomes at or below 50% of the area median family income. Eligible home repairs for assistance include, but are not limited to: (1) repair of roofs, floors, walls, porches, foundations, windows, doors; (2) plumbing and electrical updates; and (3) energy efficiency retrofitting involving installation of insulation, caulking and weather stripping of doors and windows, installation and repair of home heating systems, etc.

The Community Development Program also collaborates with other on-campus and external organizations to implement home energy conservation education initiatives. Through a series of workshops, seminars, and fairs, the Program provides training and education to community residents on ways they can conserve energy and reduce their utility bills.
