City & Habitat for Humanity partner to rehab homes, train workforce

More homes in the City of Decatur will be rehabilitated thanks to a partnership between the City and Decatur Area Habitat for Humanity (DAH4H). The Decatur City Council has approved up to $250,000 of American Rescue Plan (ARP) monies to be used by DAH4H to rehab vacant properties in Decatur to add higher-quality housing stock. The City will provide homes and funding and DAH4H will manage the rehabilitation. The plan is to involve DPS-61 high school trades students and other labor apprentices to get hands-on experience with rehabbing homes. Read more here
