U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support for Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency, Inc. The organization, which serves ten counties in northern Michigan, is dedicated to strengthening communities through helping individual families achieve greater economic security. Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency, Inc. received a grant through NeighborWorks America, a non-profit organization that supports local efforts to revitalize and sustain communities by promoting and preserving affordable housing.
"Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency, Inc. is already doing the critical work that is sustaining and revitalizing local neighborhoods throughout the region" Stabenow said. "This NeighborWorks America grant will mean even more Northern Michigan families will be able to keep the dream of home ownership a reality.
"An affordable home is part of the American dream, and this grant will make that dream a reality for thousands of families by making it easier to create and maintain affordable housing and for homeowners to stay in their homes through the hard work of local nonprofit groups," Levin said.
Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency, Inc. will receive $115,000.
