Landlord Resources

Calling all Utica Area Landlords!

We encourage all of the Utica area landlords to join us at the Empowerment Center located on 230 James St. in Utica on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.,unless otherwise noted.  Each month we discuss concerns or questions that landlords may have with various local community partners including UPD and the HomeOwnershipCenter. Guest speakers such as the EPA, Codes Enforcement, Legal Aid and the Department of Health are invited to the meetings to talk about specific issues that have been brought to our attention.

Follow the Empowerment Center on Facebook or view our Community Meeting Schedule to stay up-to-date!

The HomeOwnershipCenter is a part of the Lead Free MV initiative which is a vital partnership with other nonprofit agencies in the community to reduce lead hazards.  To read more about the initiative and how you can be involved click here.

If you live in the West Utica area and believe you may have lead in your home and have children under the age of 6 that spend a lot of time in your home, please contact us at 315.724.4197 or
