Neighborhood program to receive grant

State Rep. Matt Lori has announced the Sturgis Neighborhood Program will receive a $30,000 grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

The grant, from the Housing Resource Fund, will be used to support general operating expenses of the organization, which serves residents of the city of Sturgis and the surrounding area.

Lori said the Sturgis Neighborhood Program serves to find housing and shelter for people who are having challenges. Lori said it helps keep families together and preserves communities.

MSHDA programs contribute to Michigan’s economic and social health by creating, enhancing and preserving housing for low- and moderate-income residents and by engaging in community economic development activities to revitalize urban and rural communities, Lori said.
