Roanoke City Council Gets Update on Habitat ARPA Funds

Roanoke, VA – Roanoke City Council spent some time today visiting one of 18 Habitat-Roanoke homes that are planned for the city with the help of federal America Rescue Plan funds.  In all, $2.6 million dollars was awarded to the Roanoke affiliate in 2022, with the final home tentatively scheduled to be completed by December 2024.

The grant also provides funding for Habitat-Roanoke’s pioneering Workforce Development Program, a 53-week intensive program that includes 500 hours of classroom instruction as well as 1,700 hours of on-the-job training.  Once a construction assistant’s education is complete, each participant will earn their journeyman’s card as well as Virginia certification in residential construction.

This home, located on Mountain Avenue SE, is expected to be completed by the first week in November with a dedication ceremony set for November 18th.  In all, 8 homes will be located in the Belmont-Fallon district, one in southwest Roanoke with the remainder of the homes set to be completed in the northwest quadrant of the city.


Habitat-Roanoke Teams Up with Virginia Housing to Dedicate 285th Home in the Roanoke Valley

The Steelman Family is set to pay their first mortgage payment and get the keys to their new home!

RICHMOND, VA – To commemorate Virginia Housing’s 50th anniversary this past year, the Authority collaborated with Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Commonwealth to advance their work to eliminate substandard housing. The Authority provided $1.2M in competitive grant funds to revitalize communities in five of Virginia’s localities. A total of $325K of these funds, known as “The Virginia House” grant, was awarded to Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley to build a home in the Belmont-Fallon community located in Southeast Roanoke.

The goal of the “The Virginia House” grant, initiated in July 2022, is to assist selected Habitat affiliates by supporting the construction costs and loan subsidies needed to make homeownership affordable for participating low-to-moderate income families. A portion of the grant funds have also been reserved to create a sustainability fund to assist Habitat homeowners facing financial hardship to prevent mortgage delinquencies.

In the City of Roanoke, “The Virginia House” grant helped finance construction of a single-family home for a family of six. In partnership with Habitat-Roanoke, the homeowner completed Virginia Housing’s Homebuyer Education course and contributed 365 hours of sweat equity toward the construction of the home.

Habitat for Humanity will host a dedication event at the home (located at 1016 Bullitt Ave SE) for the family on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at 10 a.m. The ceremony is open to media.

“Our partnership with Habitat for Humanity has always meant a great deal to us. To commemorate our 50th Anniversary this past year, we felt it was very important to do even more with this incredible organization to provide homes across Virginia. We look forward to each project and the positive impact it will have on the families and communities involved,” said Susan Dewey, CEO of Virginia Housing.

“We are honored to be one of the five recipients of the Virginia House grant,” says Karen Mason, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley. “This investment in the Roanoke Valley is driven by a shared commitment to help more families achieve financial security and stability. We are grateful for the work of Virginia Housing throughout the commonwealth.”

By investing in the power of home, Virginia Housing transforms where and how thousands of Virginians live and thrive, strengthening communities and the economy. Founded in 1972 as the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA), Virginia Housing has worked for over 50 years in partnership with the public and private sectors to help Virginians attain quality, affordable housing. While receiving no state taxpayer dollars, Virginia Housing raises money in capital markets to provide mortgages to first-time homebuyers, financing for rental developments and neighborhood revitalization efforts. Virginia Housing invests in innovations in affordable housing and makes homes for people with disabilities and older Virginians more livable.

These boards will be open to view while the rest of the first floor walls are built and while the second floor is built. They will, however, eventually be covered with wall board, plaster and paint, but their blessings will remain a part of this home forever.
