Briefly noted

In a first-time partnership, Church World Service and Habitat for Humanity jointly announced last month that $446,000 of a $3 million grant will be distributed to repair 82 homes on the Gulf Coast. The repair projects will be managed locally by several recovery organizations in the region to help low-income individuals and families who are still displaced following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita return home. The project is the first stage of a house repair grant from Habitat for Humanity. CWS will disburse the remainder of the $3 million over two years to support residential reconstruction projects in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
