Biloxi, Mississippi

Thanks to an $84,000 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grant from Community Bancshares and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas), 12 low-income families in George and Greene counties in Mississippi will receive significant upgrades to their homes, most of which lack basic air conditioning. The George/Greene Habitat for Humanity (HFH) will spearhead the renovations. “We are a rural Mississippi affiliate with no major industry in our network,” said George/Greene HFH Executive Director Sue Trosclair. “We have to raise our own funds, so this grant is very important to us.”
