U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald, Indiana Lt. Governor Eric Holcomb, and Gary, Indiana Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson today officially opened the North West Indiana (NWI) Veterans Village supportive housing project.
CSH director in Indiana, Lori Phillips-Steele, joined Secretary McDonald, Mayor Freeman-Wilson and Lt. Governor Holcomb on the dais and noted the Village is the first supportive housing in the country to receive funding, in the form of a pre-development loan, from the CSH Supportive Housing Solutions Fund.
The estimated $10.1 million Village includes 44 units of supportive housing for Veterans, along with a computer room, exercise room, roof garden, and a restaurant that will be open to the public and serve as a training ground for those interested in pursuing a career in culinary arts.
Broadway Area CDC is the developer of this blockbuster project.
Broadway completed the Indiana Supportive Housing Institute in 2011, sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and supported by CSH, and has created attractive and much-needed apartments for those who served our country.
