Town Council Presents Funding to Habitat for Humanity

On Tuesday, Sep. 20th, Ashland Town Council presented a check in the amount of $100,000 to Renee Robinson, Executive Director of Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity. This funding was made possible by the Town's American Rescue Plan Act funds

Members of Council and Town of Ashland staff are happy to provide this funding to an organization making a great impact in our community to increase affordable housing options and decrease barriers to home ownership.

"The project we are using these funds towards is the purchase and renovation of 206 Dewey Street in Ashland. This is a fire-damaged home that has been vacant for almost two years," said Renee Robinson, Habitat's Executive Director. "We are excited to renovate it and sell it at an affordable price to a homeowner in our program." 

She added, "We would be unable to afford to purchase this home and renovate it without the Town’s support through this ARPA funding. We are thrilled that the Town prioritized these funds with a focus on affordable housing so that we could complete a project like this. The need for affordable housing is greater than ever and we hope to do more renovation projects like this in the future."
