Investing in community – Congressman visits Habitat site in Silverton

November 2021 Posted in Community, Other

Congressman Kurt Schrader visits with the future homeowners of a house in the new North Willamette Habitat for Humanity development in Silverton.

Congressman Kurt Schrader made a trip to Silverton recently to tour the site of North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity’s planned development. 

This project is the largest to date for the affiliate, and is the first step in addressing a grave shortage of affordable housing for a diverse population within the community. Plans call for thedevelopment to be home to 18 local families, including members of the BIPOC, senior and veteran communities.

During the visit, Schrader met with NWV Habitat staff and board members, as well as the partner family who will move into the first home being built. He learned more about the project, including construction and the family selection process, as well as the critical need for funding to cover infrastructure costs. Schrader said he was pleased to see the progress on the project.
