Union Bank continues partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties, Inc., for the production, preservation and protection of affordable housing.
VISALIA (Nov 4, 2021) —Union Bank recently awarded Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties a $5,000 grant supporting affordable housing production in the City of Hanford.
Since 1994, Habitat for Humanity of Tulare/Kings Counties has partnered with the local community to help provide hard-working, low-income families with first-time homeownership opportunities through the Homeownership Program. Qualified families contribute “sweat-equity” hours by assisting volunteers and staff with the construction of their home, leading to the purchase of the home through an affordable Habitat mortgage. Habitat also provides low-cost, critical home repairs and rehab assistance to low-income homeowners throughout Tulare and Kings Counties.
Homeowner payments, generous financial and in-kind contributions from community partners such as Union Bank, enable Habitat to continue investing in affordable home production, preservation and protection to ensure local families have safe and affordable housing opportunities so they can build strength, stability, and self-reliance.
