MACH Academy’s purpose in participating in Family Housing and Neighborhood Stabilization Programs is to support homeownership for low and moderate-income families and to assist low and moderate income families with purchasing, rehabilitating and refinancing of their homes. Additionally, we want to provide employment opportunities and attract national business chains to our area.

Home Owner Benefits
Low and moderate-income persons will benefit from our program because we will be providing decent affordable housing which will have financial and social benefits in our community. Additionally, we will improve their living environments by creating economic opportunities. This will be accomplished by identifying potential investors who have a stated interest in our identified areas. They will also benefit by having a community that has a unified spirit with enhanced entertainment and recreational activities.
MACH Academy, Inc. is acutely aware of the importance of wealth and income in the transition to home ownership. We understand that both household income and wealth have a significant importance to the transition to homeownership. Additionally, a lot of lenders require higher down payments to minorities to mitigate their credit risk. We plan to educate and counsel our potential clientele about improving their credit and educate them not to have an aversion to debt, but be responsible.
