The City of Columbia and local financial institutions partner for All Access Columbia homeownership workshop

June 16, 2022

In honor of Homeownership Month, the City of Columbia’s Community Development department and its partners will host a homeownership focused session of All Access Columbia.

All Access Columbia is a quarterly event that helps to develop strong and diverse neighborhoods by providing information and resources to citizens. All Access Columbia covers material relevant to both personal and community level growth with topics like neighborhood leadership, financial education, homeownership and home maintenance.

This session of All Access Columbia will focus on providing helpful information and encouraging homeownership. In addition, details on Do It Yourself (DIY) projects, available City home loan programs, as well as maintenance tips and cost saving home improvement ideas will be offered. Other valuable topics covered will include Credit and Budgeting management. Representatives from several financial institutions will be on site to walk attendees through the process of pre-qualifying for a home loan.

The upcoming session of All Access Columbia will be held at the Busby Street Community Center, 1735 Busby St. on June 23, 2022 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
