Housing Authority of Paducah Breaks Ground on HC Mathis Senior Housing Complex
A new senior housing complex is something that is on the minds of many in the Paducah area since the groundbreaking that took place on August 10, 2010. With the construction of the new 28-unit complex that is set to be complete by next August, this will be a great resource for senior citizens and persons with disabilities needing affordable housing.
Field Office Director Krista Mills said, "The Kentucky Office of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) applauds the Housing Authority of Paducah for its use of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus funding to construct 28 new units of housing for senior citizens and people with disabilities. The HC Mathis Senior Housing complex will be constructed using sustainable building practices that will allow the housing authority to apply for certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program administered by the US Green Building Council. HUD is proud to be a partner with the housing authority as it works toward furthering one of the Department’s signature goals of creating sustainable housing and livable communities."
$2.6 million in HUD ARRA competitive capital funds will be used in the construction of the complex along with other funding sources.
