Genesee County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) has received a grant of $15,000 from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint from the Arthur L. Tuuri Health Fund to support Habitat’s critical repair loan pool, according to a press statement. The grant will provide home repair services for low to moderate income residents at a sliding scale cost based on their income, which enables homeowners to complete critical repairs when they don’t qualify for other assistance programs.
“We are extremely grateful to the Community Foundation for this addition to our Critical Home Repair Loan Pool Program”, says Thomas Hutchison, Executive Director, Genesee County Habitat for Humanity. “Without the program, many Flint and Genesee County residents would not be able to alleviate the health and safety issues around their home. And with our current health crisis and ‘stay at-home’ directives, this funding and the critical home repairs it will make possible, is now more crucial than ever.”
