HARRISBURG − February 26, 2019  − Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County Inc. was awarded $150,000 in state funding for accessible housing improvements for qualifying low income residents with a disability through the Keystone Communities program, according to Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10). 

The funding will support the implementation of an accessible housing program that provides necessary modifications to the homes of 24 people across the county. 

“Everyone deserves the right to live in safe, accessible housing,” Sen. Santarsiero said. “I will be working closely with advocacy groups, government agencies, the business community and developers to achieve that goal.”

The Keystone Communities program is administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) and is designed to support local initiatives that grow and stabilize neighborhoods and communities, encourage the creation of partnerships between the public and private sectors in the community, and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.
