In the February/March issue of Habitat World, a reference to the U.S. Fair Housing Act of 1968 was incorrectly stated. It should have read: The U.S. Fair Housing Act of 1968 prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, advertising or financing of housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin.

Also in that issue, a Field Note inadvertently implied that the Houses the Senate Built kickoff was held in Washington, D.C. In fact, the house build took place in partnership with Prince Georges County HFH in Capitol Heights, a neighborhood located just inside the Maryland state line.

Students Team Up for Collegiate Challenge

Trading pencils for hammers and schoolbooks for house plans, more than 9,700 students participated in this years spring break event.

Collegiate Challenge, coordinated by HFHIs Campus Chapters and Youth Programs department, offers students a way to give back to communities during school breaks by working with homeowners and local volunteers to build simple, decent and affordable houses.

This spring, more than 640 teams from about 450 schools and other groups traveled to 183 affiliates throughout the United States. These students raised almost $900,000 for the affiliates.

For information, contact the CCYP department at (800) HABITAT, ext. 2415.
