Habitat for Humanity recieves grant to build new homes

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Several new families may soon be able to get the keys to their future home.

Habitat for Humanity just received money to be able to build three more homes.

The grant which totals just over a quarter million dollars will allow them to buy the land and materials for the houses.

They say that while there are people who have good credit ratings many just don't have the income to be able to buy a house through the traditional means.

Habitat officials encourage anyone who feels they might qualify for their program to contact their office at 724-3227.

Home recipients must also participate in the construction process while the house is being constructed.
