On Wednesday, March 19th, the Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (TSAHC) presented a $30,000 check to Motivation, Education, and Training, Inc. (MET). Accepting the check on behalf of MET was Beatriz Farias, Housing Services Coordinator. The award was presented by David Long, TSAHC President, and State Senator Eddie Lucio.
The grant was awarded as part of the 2013 cycle of TSAHC's Texas Foundations Fund program and will allow MET to provide critical home repairs for six very low-income farm workers in Willacy, Starr, Zavala, Maverick, and Dimmitt Counties.
