Three families who are homeless will be moving into housing with the help of Cuyahoga County, and LMM is excited to be the landlord they’ve been waiting for!
Local and state leaders and representatives joined LMM to celebrate another Breaking New Ground Affordable (BNG) Housing Initiative milestone on July 24. A ribbon cutting marked the completion of three more units in the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood.
Cuyahoga County utilized Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to pay for the purchase and renovation of five units total. The County’s contribution to the campaign brought total funding to $4.2 million for the project, above its original goal. Cuyahoga County is the only government funder to contribute to the 20 housing units campaign.
“We know that cost is one of the biggest barriers to getting families into sustainable permanent housing,” said County Executive Chris Ronayne. “The County is proud to be able to provide the necessary funding to help close the gap for this innovative project and demonstrate our commitment to affordable housing options for all residents.”
