MCDC works to improve McKinney for all residents. Over the years we have supported Habitat for Humanity efforts in McKinney in a variety of ways. Grants have been awarded for the purchase of land to build homes and the creation of the Youth United home that was built entirely by participants under the age of 25. In 2011 MCDC provided funding to aid the expansion of Habitat for Humanity's ReStore. ReStore's Re-Sale and Recycling program not only generates funds for affordable housing, but also has kept more than one million pounds of discarded construction materials and home furnishings out of our local landfill.
