Habitat for Humanity receives $100K from B.C. government

Money to go to Phase 2 of Meadow Hill development

Two houses in a Habitat for Humanity Mid-Vancouver Island development will see completion thanks in part to money from the B.C. government’s Housing Endowment Fund.

According to a press release from the provincial government, $100,000 from the fund will go toward completion of the pair of four-bedroom houses, which will provide two larger family units, as Phase 2 for the Meadow Hill development on Extension Road.

The development will ultimately have six single-family houses.

“We are proud to support Habitat for Humanity’s goal of building safe, decent and affordable housing for families in need. We will continue to work with our partners throughout B.C. to make sure everyone has a place to call home,” said Rich Coleman, minister responsible for housing, in the press release.
