The team analyzed budgets, expenditure receipts, and housing data to evaluate the financial and social impacts of the Habitat affiliate’s operations across Wayne County. Positive impacts were observed in local construction spending and housing value spillovers.
This project was made possible by financial support from the following organizations: The Andrew Fellowships Fund, The Laura B. Frick Charitable Trust, The Ralph R. & Grace B. Jones Foundation, The Donald & Alice Noble Foundation, Bala Venkataraman, The Wayne County Community Foundation, The Wilson Fellowships Fund, and Habitat for Humanity in Wayne County.
Members of Habitat for Humanity will be online to field comments on Nov. 5 from 11am-1pm and from 3:30pm-5:30pm.
