The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) plans to issue up to $25 million in tax-exempt mortgage revenue bonds to fund the renovation of Cascade Village Apartments, a 74-unit low-income apartment complex in South Sacramento. When renovations are complete, the community will feature new flooring, paint, bathrooms, kitchens, appliances, HVAC units, electrical upgrades, and ADA-accessible units.
The Washington Post published an in-depth article about Washington, D.C.’s new Plaza West apartment complex, a high-rise featuring 50 units set aside for families of grandparents raising grandchildren, and the positive impact this unique community has on its resident “grandfamilies.” The District of Columbia Housing Authority distributes subsidies to 11 units in the complex set aside for Department of Behavioral Health clients.
District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA) Executive Director Tyrone Garrett announced that DCHA “has increased participation and success rates by nearly 150 percent in the Section 3 employment program and a 70 percent increase in job training and professional development.” In FY 2018 more than 150 new employees at DCHA or its partner organizations were low-income D.C. residents, and more than half of these new employees were DCHA residents. These employment rates constitute a 150 percent increase from FY 2015. Garrett added, “DCHA will continue to help low-income residents in the District to set their sights high and make their dreams come true.”
The Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) donated land in Columbus’s Linden neighborhood to architecture firm Moody Nolan for the construction of its first “Legacy Project,” a mortgage-free single-family home that will be provided to a low-income family selected by community partner Southeast, Inc. Moody Nolan hopes to construct one Legacy Project per year in each of the 12 communities in which the firm operates.
