The houses are provided as part of the city of McKinney’s Housing Rehabilitation and Reconstruction program. These homes were too damaged to repair, so the city demolished and rebuilt them.

According to the city, construction took longer than anticipated due to material shortages. But, the city is excited that these residents will all be home for the holiday season.

Another homeowner received keys to their home on Dec. 16, totaling three homes that were rebuilt this year by the city this year.

The Housing Rehabilitation and Reconstruction program is funded by the Community Development Block Grant. These funds are awarded to the city of McKinney by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The city’s housing services division has also assisted more than 60 families with down payment and closing cost assistance, tenant-based rental assistance, and rehabilitation and reconstruction of existing housing for low- and moderate-income homeowners.
