LAKE COUNTY – In pursuit of its goal to provide more housing to county residents who need it, Habitat to Humanity of Lake County has received another grant.


The organization recently received a $2,000 grant from State Farm Insurance, Habitat for Humanity reported Friday.


The State Farm funds will go directly to purchasing building materials for new, single-family homes.


“The condition of available housing and commercial services greatly affects the quality of life for residents and the stability of a community,” State Farm officials noted.


Habitat reported that the funds already are being put to use on its next housing project, the Clearlake Housing Project III. The money was utilized in pouring the foundation for the 11th house Habitat has built locally.

Homeowners only pay the cost to build the home – around $70,000 – with no interest charged, according to a Friday Habitat for Humanity statement.


State Farm's grant brings the total donated to Habitat from State Farm's Strong Neighborhood Community Development Grant Program to $17,000.


The local habitat chapter reported that, little by little, through such funding, the quality of housing is being improved in Lake County.
