JBS Foods Canada is investing $300,000 to build houses in Brooks, Alta., as part of the Hometown Strong initiative, one of the largest community investment programs of its kind.
In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta, the funding will help build an affordable duplex in the city. Two local families will have the opportunity to buy these homes with no down payment and no interest, and their mortgage payments will help fund future Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta projects.
In October 2020, JBS Foods Canada announced a $2 million investment in Brooks to support the community’s future through the JBS Hometown Strong program.
JBS operates one of the largest beef-packing plants in Canada in Brooks.
