Veteran Homes Get Repaired Thanks to Habitat for Humanity
Simply put, Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful organization that puts time and effort in helping our neighbors who need it most. And this time we're talking about repairing veteran homes.
According to WILX, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced a $1 million grant to Habitat for Humanity of Michigan.
The goal of the grant is to repair or modify the homes of veterans who are low income and have disabilities.
The funding was issued by the Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification Pilot Program.
"This program is competitively awarding grants to nonprofit organizations, meaning the organizations submit proposals to repair and modify veteran homes." (WILX)
I could totally see myself doing something like this because I really like to help people out when they need it. I have neighbors who ask me to fix things all the time.
If you take a look at the break down, funds may be used to make physical modifications to accommodate the functional limitations that result from having a disability such as wheelchair ramps, bathroom fixtures and more.
"Funds may also be used for making physical modifications to allow for a veteran's caregiver, rehabilitation of a residence that is in disrepair, and installing energy efficiency features or equipment when utility costs are a financial burden." (WILX)
