Warren County Habitat for Humanity also received a grant of over $235,000 to help accelerate their neighborhood revitalization project on Osage Street.

This grant was secured through the Susan Dewey Virginia Housing Grant and Warren County Habitat for Humanity was one of five affiliates to receive funding.

This will help with not just the construction but also to subsidize loan costs, enable deserving families to qualify for mortgages and secure their homes.
