From ABC 3 KEYT:
The Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura was just awarded $18,983,730 from the California Strategic Growth Council for its Ventura Westside Housing and Active Transportation grant application.
The award is granted through the state’s Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program (AHSC), which funds projects that promote healthier communities and protect the environment by increasing the supply of affordable places to live near jobs, stores, transit and other daily needs.
“It is the first time that it has been received in Ventura County, so we are very excited,” said Denise Wise, Chief Executive Officer at the Housing Authority of San Buenaventura. “The grant is for the city of Ventura and it is actually benefiting the project that we are standing on today.”
