Grassroots Community Development is proud to announce a phase VII of its highly successful roof repair program to help low-income families with repairing their roofs. In the rainy months, we receive calls from families with terrible roof problems. This sevent phase of our program hopes to address some of that need. Grassroots Community Development is finishing up the completion of 145+ roof repairs for families and is starting a Phase VII of these efforts. The services provided by Grassroots Community Development Corporation are made possible in part through a grant from the City of Waco. The program is free to low-income families that live in the City of Waco. We have enough funds to repair around 22 roofs. Our application process is open until we have expended our funds.
