Article from the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority:
Exciting and great things are happening at Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority. We recently closed on the financing to transform and preserve The Evanston through the Rental Assistance Demonstration Program (RAD). There are 100 families residing at that site and their home will undergo renovation improvements estimated at $4 million. Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority closings through RAD thus far add up to $39 million. We are anticipating $82 million in preservation work for 2020. CMHA goes beyond housing by serving as an economic engine to the community with job creation. To celebrate the preservation work being done at The Evanston, a “Reno Day” was held January 7, 2020.
As part of an ongoing commitment to providing affordable housing throughout Hamilton County, CMHA is renovating the low-rise building with new flooring, new bathrooms, retouched kitchens and more.
Furthermore, on January 9 U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Midwest Regional Administrator Joseph P. Galvan designated Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Findlater Resource Opportunities Center, 595 Strand Lane, and the Winton Terrace Resource Opportunities Center, 4848 Winneste Ave., as EnVision Centers as part of Secretary Ben Carson’s signature EnVision Center initiative today. Following a highly competitive selection process, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority and City of Cincinnati are the newest of 34 communities across the country with an ‘EnVision Center’ designation.
