BEDFORD, Va. – The Central Virginia District Planning Commission is making sure people can stay in their homes.

The organization used nearly $1 million in grants to help rehab homes in Bedford County.

“I really love this house,” Cathy Wright, who lives in the Hilltop neighborhood in Bedford said.

Wright lived in her previous home for 29 years and that house was in major need of repairs.

“My living room ceiling was falling down, my bathrooms were no longer workable,” Wright said.

Wright is one of about a dozen people who either had a home rebuilt or fixed up.

“Sorely needed at the time,” Jefrado Granger, with the Central Virginia Planning District Commission said.

Granger said the goal of Phase 1 of the project is to improve and revitalize living conditions of low to moderate-income households.
