From the San Jose Spotlight:

San Jose is partnering with various agencies on a multi-million-dollar project to transform a hotel into housing for youth transitioning out of foster care.

The city approved a nearly $2.8 million grant to close the funding gap on a $32 million affordable housing project in San Jose. Developer Jamboree Housing Corporation will transform the Pavilion Inn hotel on 4th Street into 39 apartments for people between the ages of 18 and 25 transitioning out of foster care system. The City Council approved the grant unanimously this week.

The property right now is being used as a hotel.

“There’s so much to like about this project,” Councilmember Dev Davis said. “Low dollar investment by the city—that’s great. No ongoing cost for the city—that’s great. Wonderful services for transitional age youth—awesome.”

The hotel is one of San Jose’s Project Homekey sites—a statewide program that repurposes hotels and motels into temporary or permanent housing. Project Homekey is footing 44% of the bill, or $14 million, for the Pavilion Inn. The project is also getting $10 million from the Santa Clara County Housing Authority and $5 million from Santa Clara County.
