(AUGUST 23, 2013) CONGRATULATIONS TO A NEW HOMEOWNER IN PLATTSMOUTH
Aug 23, 2013 -- 

Megan Weatherby, a single mother of two children had been renting and was now in the market to purchase a home of her own.

In May 2013, USDA Rural Development provided Megan with a loan through the Direct Homeownership program. Southeast Nebraska Community Action (SENCA) subsidized a portion of the purchase through the SENCA Homes III program with gap financing. SENCA also provided a grant for repairs to the home.

Due to the partnership loans, Megan was able to purchase the home she had been renting and her family could continue to live in the neighborhood they had become accustomed to in Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

Weatherby said “Being a homeowner to me means taking the first step towards your future. It means having a constant and safe place for my children to grow up.” Weatherby continued, “I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to become a homeowner, the American dream as some call it, and to become part of the community.”
