The Property Rescue Initiative (PRI) is a program of the West Virginia Housing Development Fund (WVHDF) that provides $1 million in loan funding for communities to remove or rehabilitate dilapidated buildings.
Anyone interested in accessing a portion of the PRI funding pool to address dilapidated buildings in their community is encouraged to attend one of 5 workshops throughout the state. The WV Community Development Hub, the WVU Land Use Clinic, and the Northern WV Brownfields Assistance Center are collaborating to provide technical assistance to communities through tools and resources they need to successfully apply for the PRI loan and to execute an abandoned/dilapidated building program in their communities.

Each full day workshop will feature guest speakers, interactive sessions on stakeholder engagement and the BAD Buildings process, and a panel of experts who will discuss creative ways to repay loans and reuse problem properties.
