6 housing projects receive grant funding

LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

More housing projects will soon be underway in the Toledo area, thanks to grant money received by local non-profit organizations.

In all, six organizations received a total of over $300,000 in grant money from the Toledo-Lucas County Housing Fund and the Lucas County Land Bank.

They are: The Ability Center of Greater Toledo (over $31,000), Friendship New Vision ($100,000), Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity ($72,000), 300 Beds (about $16,000), Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority ($100,000), and Neighborworks Toledo Region (over $26,000).

There were 12 proposals requesting funding, but only these six received any.

It's estimated this money will help leverage over $10 million for housing in Toledo and Lucas County. The funds will also be used as matches for federal and state grants.
