PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — An organization set up by former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush is providing an additional $1.4 million to the effort to help Haiti rebuild from the January 2010 earthquake.

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund says just over $1 million will go to a Haitian company that will train engineers and general contractors to make simple steel-frame houses.

It is also providing a grant of $225,000 for equipment at a school that gives construction training. A third grant of $150,000 is going to a nonprofit group that loans money to help poor people pay for energy, clean water and other basic needs.

The grants were announced Tuesday. The fund has awarded $25 million in grants to Haiti reconstruction.
