Aztec, NM – Tres Rios Habitat for Humanity has purchased three new lots in Aztec where affordable homes will be built in partnership with low income families.
The lots, located on Zia Street, were sold at a discounted price by the owner making them affordable for purchase by Tres Rios Habitat. The utilities are already at the property lines, which will make future construction easier.
Public Relations Director, Hope Tyler, said that “Tres Rios Habitat for Humanity partners with families who otherwise would not be able to realize their dreams of owning a home.”
Hardworking families who make less than 60% of the median income in San Juan County, less than $31,280 for families of four, are eligible to apply for a home. They must be able to prove that their current housing is inadequate; poor heating, leaks in the roof, overcrowding, unsafe or unsanitary conditions for example.
“With a little help, we believe families can be empowered to overcome the barriers that so often stand between their families and a better, healthier, and more stable life,” said Tyler.
Tres Rios Habitat currently is taking applications for the 11th Habitat home in San Juan County, which will be built on a previously purchased lot in Flora Vista. Application information is available at: www.tresrioshabitat.com.
Partial funding for these homes come from donations to the Habitat Store, private donations, and community grants. In December, Tres Rios Habitat received an $11,900 donation from the Navajo Transitional Energy Company.
