Six homes located in southern New Mexico will receive grant funds for improvements. U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development’s Housing Preservation Grant Program awarded $50,000 to Tierra del Sol Housing to make the improvements.

The USDA Housing Preservation Grant Program provides grant funding to rehabilitate and improve homes for low-income rural residents.

“Making sure quality, affordable housing options exist is essential to the sustainability of our rural communities. This investment made by USDA will help Tierra del Sol, a local housing organization, continue its supportive work in the communities of Columbus and Anthony,” commented USDA Rural Development State Director Terry Brunner.
