Low-income families will be able to repair their homes


LAREDO, TX. – NeighborWorks Laredo will have $2 million to provide housing for low-income families.
Funds will be allocated to 110 colonia families in Laredo, Webb, and Zapata Counties.
“These homes will be repairable in the face of heat challenges,” said Congressman Henry Cuellar. «Temperatures average close to 100 degrees and air conditioning is required as a basic necessity.»
Low-income families will be able to apply to the organization, said Elizabeth Alonso Villarreal, executive director of NeighborWorks Laredo.
It’s a commitment to providing fair housing in our area, Alonso said.
NeighborWorks Laredo helps low-income families lower their energy bills by providing the repairs needed to make their homes more efficient.
Webb County Commissioner Rosaura Tijerina said these funds will allow low-income families to repair their homes and live more comfortably.
Councilor Mercurio Martínez III thanked Congressman Cuellar for taking into consideration the needs of families.
Raúl Reyes, treasurer of Webb County, said that when he was mayor of El Cenizo the help was necessary and that in this city there are people who need the subsidies.
These funds also consider people with disabilities to have access to homes that meet their needs tailored to their needs.
Cuellar said it will take more work to bring millions of dollars to Texas and that the state will receive $173,162,598 in weatherization grants and technical assistance funds through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Act.
