Hattiesburg dedicates 5th home in Housing Reconstruction Program

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Another deserving Hub City resident is benefiting from a partnership between the City of Hattiesburg and the Salvation Army, which is helping to eliminate sub-standard housing.

Friday, a dedication ceremony was held for the new home of Vannie Nicholson on Miller St.

Nicholson is the most recent recipient of a new home as part of the city's Housing Reconstruction Program.

The cost of Nicholson's home was $100,000.

The city paid $75,000 of the cost, while the Salvation Army paid the remaining $25,000.

This was the 5th and final home constructed as part of the program, which is funded through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
