Members of the Cameron and Elk Counties Local Housing Options Team [LHOT] have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming Housing Expo, the first of its kind offered by the group, on April 14 from noon to 6 p.m. at Central Hose Company along North Broad Street in Ridgway.
The expo will showcase builders, contractors, realtors, financing mechanisms and services available to the seasoned homeowner, first-time homebuyer, landlords and renters.
The event is still in need of area participants.
"Some additional services available will include insurance, realty, financing mechanisms, contractors, builders and suppliers," said Amy Wehler, event chairperson and Regional Housing Coordinator for the Self-Determination Housing Project of Pennsylvania.
"At this time, the Housing Expo has retained a variety of vendors," Wehler said. "However, the LHOT is still seeking interested businesses and agencies to participate."
A free table and lunch also is being offered to potential vendors.
"This is an excellent opportunity for your business or agency to participate, market your products, and network directly with the public," Wehler said.
Interested vendors are asked to please contact Wehler at 814-389-4440.
