Commissioners Invest in United Way’s Mobile Home Reassessment Project

United Way appropriations donation

Chester County Commissioners Michelle Kichline, Kathi Cozzone and Terence Farrell recently presented a check for $10,000 to the United Way of Chester County to support the organization’s Mobile Home Reassessment project.  The donated funds are part of the County’s annual appropriations to organizations and non-profits and will be used by the United Way of Chester County to provide property tax reassessment support to all mobile home owners in the County.    

The Mobile Home initiative, piloted by the United Way of Chester County in partnership with the Honey Brook Food Pantry, resulted in 177 successful mobile home assessment appeals with an average property assessment decrease of $970 a year.  The funds presented by the County Commissioners will allow for an expansion of the United Way of Chester County’s program to reach an additional 200 homeowners. 

Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone, who also serves on the United Way of Chester County Board, said, “Chester County has a tremendous resource in the United Way, with many programs that effectively and practically support the education, health and financial independence of county residents.  The Mobile Home Reassessment project is a great example of the way in which the United Way of Chester County comes alongside other non-profits, as well as public and private organizations, to provide practical solutions that, in this instance, truly benefit County homeowners who have been unfairly taxed.”

Chris Saello, President and CEO of the United Way of Chester County said, “We are so grateful to Commissioners Kichline, Farrell and Cozzone for their investment in this important project that is allowing United Way to help people in Chester County towards financial stability.”
