LANSING-Sen. Roger Kahn is pleased to announce that three agencies in Saginaw and Gratiot counties have been awarded $550,000 in grants from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.
“This is exciting news for our people,” said Kahn, R-Saginaw Township. “Owning a home is part of the American Dream, but it comes with challenges. Budget cuts and a tough housing market have left many searching for help, and these funds will go a long way in aiding those in need.”
The Saginaw County Governmental Center received $300,000 in Housing Resource Funds to help rehabilitate 14 homes in the county. The Saginaw County Community Action Committee was awarded $25,000 to conduct foreclosure prevention sessions at local community based organizations throughout
the city of Saginaw. Gratiot County was granted $225,000 for homeowner rehabilitation and emergency repair programs.
MSHDA was established in 1966 and provides financial and technical assistance through public and private partnerships to create and preserve safe and decent affordable housing, engage in community economic development activities, develop vibrant cities, towns and villages, and address homeless issues.
