FORT LAUDERDALE – A $5,000 2020 State Farm Good Neighbor Citizenship grant will help keep volunteers, future homeowners, and staff safe while they work on 10 new Habitat Broward homes being built to provide hard-working, low income families a decent place to live.
The grant supports OSHA mandated fall-protection measures to protect those working more than six feet off the ground.
Habitat Broward engages over 3,500 volunteers and future homeowners each year in the construction of decent, affordable homes critically needed in Broward. This not only reduces the cost of building, but it also engages the community in the solution to the affordable housing crisis.
“We are grateful to State Farm for this investment in safety. Maintaining a safe construction environment for all parties involved in our building process is Habitat’s utmost priority,” stated Alex Nesar, Habitat Broward’s Director of Construction.
State Farm has been a corporate sponsor of Habitat Broward for nearly a decade. With the shared commitment to affordable housing, they have worked together to build a stronger Broward, one home and family at a time. Since making its first gift in 2011, State Farm has donated $54,000 in grant funding and hundreds of volunteer hours to make affordable housing a reality for low income families in need of a decent, affordable place to call home.
