New Funding Means More Homes for Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity

Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity is gearing up for more summer projects, after receiving new funding.

They were awarded a $25,000 grant comes from the Charles M. and Joan R. Taylor Foundation.

They say this will allow the nonprofit to officially break ground in the new Meadowlands Subdivision in Alanson.

One home has been delivered to the subdivision so far, with nine more houses to follow throughout the summer.

“We have been serving the community for over 31 years now, so we have a long history of building in the community and the Meadowlands project is really marking one of the largest developments that our affiliate has ever undertaken, so we’re very happy for the support and very excited to be getting started,” said NMHFH Marketing Manager Gina Stegehuis.

This year, Northern Michigan Habitat for Humanity has 15 new homes underway and more scheduled through 2025.

They are also currently looking for a partner to finish building a home in East Jordan.
