Project Description

The Habitat Homes Project provided support to Habitat for Humanity (HFH) affiliates located in Metro Jackson and in the Mississippi Gulf Coast areas of Mississippi. These two HFH entities collaborated to build 85+ affordable single-family homes in Hurricane Katrina-impacted communities across Mississippi. Home designs incorporated water and energy-saving elements along with environmental sustainability features to lower owner operational expenses. The homes were built with volunteer labor and sold at affordable rates to low-income families earning 30-80% of the AMI. Home sales were financed with below-market rate mortgages. (NNMF NMTCs: $10 million
