Graham Announces a $65,000 Housing Preservation Grant for Williamsburg County

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a $65,700 grant to Telemon Corporation for a housing rehabilitation project in Williamsburg County. The funds will be used to repair and rehabilitate very low-income family homes. This project will be a partnership with Telemon’s Youthbuild Program in the Williamsburg/Lake City Enterprise Community. This partnership will provide job training to youth in the area and reduce the substandard housing needs in the Enterprise Community. “This money will help improve the quality of life for families in Williamsburg County,” said Graham. “The project is a great investment in the future of the community.”
