Our sincere thanks to Senator Susan Collins and her office for helping to secure $3.7 million in the most recent appropriations bill, which will allow Community Concepts to renovate 12 of the agency’s low-income rental housing properties throughout Androscoggin, Franklin and Oxford counties. The funding will be used to renovate 97 units in Bethel, Brownfield, Fryeburg, Lewiston, Norway and South Paris.

“As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, upgrades include converting oil-fired boilers over to high-efficiency propane heaters and installing energy-efficient appliances, LED lighting, high-efficiency windows and insulated doors, as well as much-needed repairs to roofs and other crucial weatherization maintenance...we will update our communities as soon as we are able on the timeline of these projects.” -Jim Martin, CEO
