PALMDALE – City of Palmdale elected officials, staff, and community volunteers joined Homes 4 Families’ annual Rainbow Build at the Palmdale Veteran Enriched Neighborhood® on Saturday, Sept. 17. The City presented Homes 4 Families with an $800,000 check representing ARPA funds granted to support the project in the building of veteran homes.

“This project provides the opportunity for veterans to attain the stability of homeownership, and we are so proud to be a part of that mission,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “We are also glad to again be a part of the annual Rainbow Build, celebrating our LGBTQ+ community.”

The annual Rainbow Build engages neighborhoods, corporations, and the LGBTQ+ community in Homes 4 Families mission to build resiliency, economic growth, neighborhoods, and homes for veteran families. This build brings people together to not only build homes, but to learn about housing issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community and Veterans.

Additional support for this project includes mortgage assistance for up to $50,000 per household available through the City of Palmdale Housing Authority.
