Brodart Neighborhood Improvement Program

The County of Lycoming, the City of Williamsport, STEP, and Greater Lycoming Habitat for Humanity have partnered together to bring to you the Brodart Neighborhood Improvement Program (BNIP). The goal of the program is to strengthen one of the City’s core neighborhoods through housing and community reinvestment projects.

Since April of 2013, the BNIP program has offered individual household assistance for interior and exterior home improvements to qualified homeowners and landlords. Assistance programs are listed below.

Who Qualifies? 

  • Applications accepted from those earning up to 200% of the 2015 Area Medium Income (AMI) ($125,400)
  • Priority assistance given to individuals or families earning less than 50% of the 2015 AMI ($31,350)
  • Applications processed on a first-come-first-served basis after priority income targets are met
  • Funding awarded on case by case basis and dependent upon property inspection
