Local Organization Receives Grant to Improve Housing Conditions

Local Organization Receives Grant to Improve Housing Conditions

Agriculture Under-Secretary for Rural Development Dallas Tonsager has announced the recipients of grants to make repairs and improve housing conditions for low- and very-low-income rural residents-- and one local group will benefit!

"For many rural residents, maintaining a home with basic features such as indoor plumbing and safe electrical wiring is often unaffordable," Tonsager said. "This program supports basic repairs to improve living conditions for rural residents with extremely limited incomes."  

Self-Help Enterprises received $85,000 of the $4.4 million in funding provided through the USDA Rural Development's Housing Preservation Grant program.

The groups will then distribute the funds to homeowners and owners of multi-family rental properties or cooperative dwellings who repair dwellings occupied by low- and very-low-income residents.

Self-Help serves families in Fresno, Kings, Madera, Merced and Tulare Counties.

Teen Read Week - Win a Kindle E-Reader

 

Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun and encourage teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books and magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more — and become regular library users. It is the national adolescent literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association.

“Teens have more activities to fill their free time than ever — web videos, social networking sites, video games, afterschool activities, athletics —and increasingly high expectations in the classroom,” said Kari Johnson, Youth Programming Librarian.  “It’s important that we show them that reading is something fun and relaxing that they can do for free. And that reading for fun can translate into better performance at school.”
