Habitat for Humanity plans to build homes in blighted neighborhood
CRESTVIEW - Some blighted areas of Crestview are soon getting a facelift thanks to Habitat Florida and a $200 million grant provided by the Florida State Legislature.
Okaloosa County has received $240,000 of that money to build four new homes in Crestview, but Nitsi Bennett - President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Okaloosa plans to stretch those funds with additional monies in order to build six homes.
The grant from the Florida Legislature stipulates that we take down existing "shacks" and build brand new homes. We have already purchased properties in poverty stricken areas so that we can help rejuvinate blighted areas that are close to downtown Crestview.
