POPPLEY, NC (WWAY) — Habitat for Humanity of Brunswick County has received $105,000 from Habitat for Humanity International.
Only 21 branches across the U.S. received funding under this year’s HUD Title 4 Building Capacity for Community Development and Affordable Housing program.
“This grant comes at a time when more than 1 in 4 Brunswick County households are cost-burdened, spending more than 30% of their income on housing,” said Executive Director Carlo Montagano. “With these funds, we will hire a full-time Faith Liaison Specialist to engage the churches, volunteers and general community support needed to serve more families with affordable housing.”
Habitat affiliates use the grants to increase their organization’s capacity with the expectation of increasing their home production by at least 15 percent over three years. Habitat for Humanity International began receiving HUD grants in 1998.
