ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Construction will soon begin on a new apartment complex for low-income seniors. The Albuquerque Journal reports the Elderly Housing Development and Operations Corp. was awarded more than $2 million for a new facility.
The grant from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development is part of a $51 million allotment in housing assistance that is awarded to nonprofits across the nation that will help fund affordable housing and offer support for low-income seniors.
Developed in the late 1990s, the mission of EHDOC is to provide housing for seniors. The new 40-unit apartment complex will be located on a vacant piece of land at Texas and Central southeast.
There’s no word yet on when construction could start.
