Habitat for Humanity extends its program in Kansas City's core.
The Habitat for Humanity is assured of funds for 11 new homes in Kansas City's urban core. Federal Home Loan Bank Executive Vice President Nicholas Spaeth has presented Fifth District Congressman Emmanuel Cleaver(D,Mo.) with a check for $110,000. While the sum may appear low for 11 homes, Habitat spokesperson Rebecca Dye says it costs the agency $95,000 to build one house. The new owners pay a maximum $85,000. This grant will satisfy the balance.
