Sánchez delivers $500,000 to Habitat for Humanity

AMTV/WHITTIER, CA, March 13 – On Monday, Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez (D-CA) delivered a check in the amount of $500,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, funding she secured as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023.

The funding Congresswoman Sánchez secured for Habitat LA will support construction of new-construction homes in Santa Fe Springs to be sold with an affordable mortgage to low-income families. This is Habitat LA’s contribution to the Lakeland Development project, a public-private partnership working to expand affordable housing in the area.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 was signed by President Joe Biden in December and included funding for community projects that were requested by residents, organizations, and local partners in the 38th Congressional District. Congresswoman Sánchez secured a total of $28,428,707 for 15 community projects in her district.

“I’m committed to ensuring families have a safe, affordable place to live,” said Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez. “These funds will be used to build new housing for families who need it most, right here in our communities. I am proud to deliver this funding today, and I will keep fighting to ensure our communities get the resources they need and deserve.”

“For more than 30 years, Habitat LA has been building and preserving affordable homes throughout Los Angeles,” said Erin Rank, President and CEO of Habitat LA. “We are immensely grateful to Congresswoman Sánchez for her support and partnership to ensure that Angelenos have equitable opportunities to thrive as homeowners.”
