Bogalusa Rebirth Community Development Corporation is overjoyed to announce that we have passed all the threshold requirements for our first $30,000 Affordable Housing for Rural Veterans (AHRV) grant to build and/or preserve housing for Veterans. This grant will be used as a match contribution to our upcoming project that we’ve partnered with Louisiana Housing Corporation and Enterprise Community Partners to include the construction of our first (3) single-family homes to include lots that have been donated by the City of Bogalusa, through our Cooperative Endeavor Agreement.
This grant was made possible through our partnership with Housing Assistance Council (HAC), as a RCDI recipient, and The Home Depot Foundation. As a local non-profit and certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), we are being provided financing, training, research and technical assistance to help us increase our capacity and allow us to better serve our community. HAC’s Veteran-focused efforts is an initiative that provides grants to community-based organizations to build housing and improve the ability to build and repair housing for Veterans.
You may ask yourself ... How can I help? As an AHRV grantee, it will be our goal as the housing provider to identify Veterans in need of housing and assess their specific necessity to ensure the right resouces are delivered. If you know a Veteran who needs help overcoming the challenges associated with getting into decent, affordable housing, please have them contact our office at (985) 735-SAVE.
