Wilmington, DE, July 6, 2023 – Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County (Habitat NCC) continues to address Wilmington’s affordable housing shortage by building 12 new townhomes on Wilmington’s Eastside. These new homes are funded by local, state, and federal investors.
The Bennett Point Groundbreaking will be held on July 11th at 11 am, on the 900 block of Bennett St.
“Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County is proud to kick-off our next project on the Eastside with a groundbreaking ceremony. We have made a long-term commitment to the revitalization of the Eastside through our three programs—creating homeownership, sustaining homeownership and neighborhood revitalization,” said Kevin Smith, Habitat NCC’s CEO. “The Bennett Point project will create twelve new, highly energy efficient homes for first-time homebuyers and continue our targeted homeownership investments on Bennett Street. We want to thank all our supporters, especially our Congressional Delegation, the City of Wilmington, Delaware State Housing Authority, the Welfare Foundation, Crystal Trust, DuPont, and Energize Delaware.”
