"This NeighborWorks America grant will allow Habitat for Humanity of Michigan and its volunteers to help even more families make the dream of home ownership a reality."
"An affordable home is part of the American dream, and this grant will make that dream a reality for thousands of families by making it easier to create and maintain affordable housing and for homeowners to stay in their homes through the hard work of local nonprofit groups," Levin said.
Habitat for Humanity of Michigan will receive a grant of $119,000. NeighborWorks America was established by Congress in 1978 as the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation and supports over 240 local and regional nonprofit partner organizations.
