Promoting Homeownership through the City Auction: Ahmad Nieves on The Public Good

Presenter(s): Orlando Dickson
Date: February 16, 2021, 10:30-11 am

Join us on The Public Good! Our next show is part of our Community Agenda Series. Representing one of our ten 2021 advocacy priorities is Ahmad Nieves, a Founding Member of the Buffalo Information Sharing Collective. Mr. Nieves will talk with us about his efforts to encourage the City to promote local homeownership by changing Auction rules and access. This PPG priority asks the City to specifically prioritize city resident buyers in the annual In-Rem foreclosure auction. A second major ask is for the City to provide grant funding opportunities for low and moderate-income buyers to purchase homes at auctions and grant funds to fix homes in disrepair. We talk about the auction process, some little-known facts, find information on properties, and much more! You will not want to miss this one!

Please note our new airtime! Listen in at 10:30 am on POWER 96.5 FM, WUFO AM 1080 or watch the video on our Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.
