June 10, 2015 (DOVER, DE) – Governor Jack Markell today joined Delaware State Housing Authority, Habitat for Humanity, Delaware Americorps, Delaware Association of Realtors, Home Builders Association of Delaware, and Delaware Health and Social Services to proclaim June as Homeownership Month.

“Delaware’s commitment to housing is evidenced by our homeownership rate, which is second highest in the nation at 74.3 percent,” said Governor Markell. “That is only possible when public/private partnerships work together to provide the opportunity, outreach, education, and affordable mortgage financing needed to help Delawareans achieve the American Dream of homeownership.”
