Habitat for Humanity Fresno County will build nine new houses in southeast Fresno next year thanks to some help from the city of Fresno.

The nonprofit housing agency was awarded $845,000 from the city’s Home Investment Partnership Program for the project at Belgravia and Laval avenues, east of Chestnut Avenue.

Mayor Ashley Swearengin joined City Council member Sal Quintero and Habitat representatives for a news conference and official kick off on Tuesday morning.

The plan is to build three-, four- and five-bedroom houses that range in size from 1,300-square-feet to 1,600-square-feet.

Construction is expected to begin in March or early April.
