CalVet Press Conference
In an unprecedented collaboration to construct the country’s first service-enriched Habitat for Heroes veteran village, the California Department of Veteran Affairs (CalVet) will announce that it has set aside more than $21 million for Habitat for Humanity San Fernando/Santa Clarita Valley (Habitat SF/SCV) to build homes for California veterans and their families living in the Santa Clarita and Sylmar areas of Los Angeles County.
Through this collaboration, low-income veterans will qualify for beautiful four-bedroom homes, which veterans can purchase using a CalVet Home Loan, a Habitat SF/SCV second loan, and in the case of the Sylmar project, a deferred silent third loan from the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The veteran will provide sweat equity to reduce the costs and help build these green, energy-efficient affordable homes. The Centre Pointe Habitat for Heroes is Sponsored by SoCal Gas Company in partnership with KHTS 1220 AM Radio. MilitaryConnection.Com nurtured the introductions and the Governor’s Interagency Council on Veterans helped to bring the collaboration to completion.
