A Brownsville non-profit organization will be able to keep helping people who are struggling financially.

Known as a persistent poverty area, the Rio Grande Valley has seen housing economics disparities continue to grow.

Come Dream Come Build Executive Director Nick Mitchell says just as COVID-19 has impacted the health of Latinos and other persons of color, it's also widened gaps in the housing market.

One of six in a group of community development financial institutions nationwide known as Partners for Rural Transformation, CDCB has been awarded a $300,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation to help bridge the economic gap for Valley residents during the pandemic.

There are no qualifications for the financial assistance.
