Sandtown Habitat for Humanity gets Home Depot grant

September 09, 2010|By Jamie Smith Hopkins, The Baltimore Sun

Sandtown Habitat for Humanity in Baltimore is getting more than $100,000 from the Home Depot Foundation to add "green" elements to 45 homes.

The foundation, which said Thursday that it is awarding grants to Habitat affiliates across the country, will give Sandtown Habitat $3,000 to $5,000 per home.

The amount depends on the amount of green upgrades — such as energy-efficient appliances — the nonprofit chooses to add to the properties it rehabs or builds. That means the value of the grant could range from $135,000 to $225,000.

Sandtown Habitat can use the money this year and next year, the Home Depot Foundation said.
