HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (AP) - Families are scheduled to move into five new Habitat for Humanity homes recently completed in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck.

The county says Wednesday that the homes are the last of 25 constructed through a commitment to replace houses for some black Hamtramck residents displaced more than 40 years ago by urban renewal projects.

The single-family homes are 1,600 square feet. They have four bedrooms, new appliances and two-car detached garages. About $4 million in Housing and Urban Development funds were used to build the 25 homes.

Partners in the project include Habitat for Humanity Detroit and the city of Hamtramck.
