Aluminum Recycling Poundage Decides Winner of Habitat House

In early 2003, one community will be the recipient of a new Habitat for Humanity home, thanks to the aluminum industry. As part of their national grant program, now in it’s fourth year, the Aluminum Association will award one of 15 Habitat affiliates a $50,000 grant to fund the cost of a home. This grant program was designed to reward and recognize Habitat affiliates nationwide that initiate and maintain successful community aluminum can recycling programs.

In July of this year, 15 affiliates were selected as finalists for this prestigious grant. Based on their plans for growing their programs, the following affiliates were selected and provided with a $5,000 seed grant:

Cape Fear HFH, Wilmington, North Carolina; Fort Wayne HFH, Fort Wayne, Indiana; Grand Island Area HFH, Grand Island, Nebraska; Greater Lynchburg HFH, Lynchburg, Virginia; HFH of Hopkins County, Madisonville, Kentucky; HFH of Springfield, Springfield, Missouri; HFH of San Bernardino, Redlands, California; Manhattan HFH, Manhattan, Kansas; Milledgeville/Baldwin County HFH, Milledgeville, Georgia; Nassau HFH, Fernandina Beach, Florida; Oswego County HFH, Oswego, New York; Riverside HFH, Riverside, California; Webster HFH, Springhill, Louisiana; Wilson Area HFH, Wilson, North Carolina and Sumter HFH, Sumter, South Carolina.

Winners will be selected based on the pounds of aluminum they recycle (per capita) and their publicity efforts.
