The housing is considered permanent, though families are encouraged and supported to move into other forms of permanent housing, as their progress, circumstances and goals change.
Units feature Energy Star rated HVAC systems, windows and exterior doors to support sustainable green initiatives, as well as low VOC interior finish products. Unique features also include green space for resident use and a community garden, which is irrigated with rain barrels. Residents will also be provided with employment training opportunities. The project was financed by the sale of tax credits, a deferred development fee and an IHCDA Development Fund Loan.Operations is funded through a HUD McKinney-Vento Grant.
