Community Spotlight: Habitat Awarded Grant to Assist Veterans


Manatee County Habitat for Humanity has been awarded a $3000 grant for a veteran home repair program called “Vets helping Vets”.


The grant will enable Manatee Habitat to provide assistance to qualifying Veterans in Manatee County in needs of minor exterior home repairs. The program will match veteran homeowners in Manatee County in need of assistance with veteran volunteers who will work alongside Habitat construction staff to complete the repairs. Projects can include construction of wheelchair ramps, minor siding or roof repair, exterior painting, or landscaping.  

The grant was made possible through the Bassett Vita Vining Hermann Group at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management Fund, and the Manatee Community Foundation.

For information on how to qualify for this program, contact Didi Hager at 941-748-9100.
