TRHA Receives Building Supplies

Torngat Regional Housing Association (TRHA) received some of its building supplies on the first freight boat last week.

Postville and Hopedale were the only two towns to get some supplies in.

William Lucy is the housing coordinator.

He says a lot of the building supplies, materials and lumber are ready to be shipped from Lewisporte.

More supplies are expected to arrive in Nain, Makkovik and Rigolet on the next freight boat.

Lucy says home repairs from last year are well underway in Hopedale, Makkovik, Postville and Rigolet.

The repairs include rebuilding a home in Hopedale.

And a mini-home in Hopedale is ready to be moved to a new lot when the Inuit Community Government gives the word.

Crews in Makkovik and Postville are working on major repairs on new homes.

Some repairs are also happening in Rigolet.

All the towns are still waiting for building supplies to arrive before they can start construction of new units.
