West Virginia Bad Credit Mortgage Lenders

West Virginia is often considered a southern state, because the majority of the state is located below the mason Dixon line. However, the state has a panhandle that stretches farther north than Staten Island. The economy in West Virginia is one of the more fragile, arguably the most fragile economy of any of the states in the United States. The recent census data shows that West Virginia is the third lowest in per capita income, ahead of Arkansas and Mississippi. Disappointingly, it also ranks last in median household income, and the proportion of West Virginia’s adult population is the lowest in the United States, with 15.3% of people having completed the degree. Typically, West Virginia has made its money with coal, the mining of coal being one of the major pillars of the states economy. Other than coal, the state is also engaged in drilling oil as well as farming.

recently, Fayette County ’s new Affordable Housing and Economic Opportunity program, the FCH-EOC, Inc., though only newly designated as a non-profit corporation, is already changing things up.

In existence for just more than a year, the organization is providing a home repair and rehabilitation program to Fayette County this summer.

The organization has plans to bring in at least 1,000 volunteers and leverage over $1 million in repair to damaged and dilapidated properties this year. As a special program, under way since the end of April, it draws from an all-volunteer labour pool of mostly out-of-state, faith-based groups, to conduct much-needed repairs to the homes of families that for economic or disability related reasons are not capable of getting the work done themselves.
