ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Media are invited to a grant-awarding ceremony on January 21, 2016, at the future housing site of the Albuquerque Rescue Mission. In attendance will be U.S. Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham, Pastor John Hill, executive director of the Albuquerque Rescue Mission, and Greg Leyendecker, president and CEO at New Mexico Bank & Trust.

In 2015, the Albuquerque Rescue Mission was awarded two Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants of $286,000 and $500,000 from New Mexico Bank & Trust and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB Dallas). The grants will be used in an adaptive reuse project, renovating an existing dance studio into 86 units of transitional housing for homeless men and women. Residents are expected to stay 18 to 24 months as they work through programs designed to assist them in becoming economically independent.
