United Manner is granting $ 1 million to cowl the housing variations in Greensboro
The money is said to help more than 300 local households recover from the economic impact of COVID-19.
GREENSBORO, NC – United Way of Greater Greensboro is providing $ 1 million to local organizations aimed at restoring homes for families financially affected by COVID-19.
Five organizations bringing charges against local housing differences will receive grants, UWGG officials said. This grant marks the first $ 10 million grant to philanthropist MacKenzie Scott in December 2020.
“Stable living is the basis of well-being. Research shows that the housing industry is an engine of the economy and, if history repeats itself, it will help fuel our recovery from COVID-19. Historically, communities that invested in their residents’ homes have seen economic recovery after virtually every major downturn, ”said Frank McCain, UWGG vice president, Community Investment & Impact.
Bridging the Gaps, Salvation Army Emergency Relief Program, Eviction Resolution Project, Salvation Army’s Order and Home Repair Program receive between $ 100,000 and $ 330,000.
The money is to be used to support more than 300 local households.
“We are thrilled that with this investment,” said McCain, “$ 1,000,000 will help local families build a future that leaves poverty behind with permanent, stable housing.”
