Housing projects for mentally ill, low income on tap
The board’s Committee on Community Improvement voted on Monday to support providing the funding through federal HOME grants overseen by the city’s planning office.
The total budget for the project is $4.3 million.
The city has already designated $400,000 in HOME funds for the work after it was approved a year ago. The project will consist of 20 apartments at 168 South Main St., on the West Side near the bank of the Piscataquog River.
“The building is ... in a particularly depressed neighborhood known as the Hollow,” a FIT representative noted in a letter to the committee.
Both requests were referred to the full board of aldermen, which is to vote on them at its meeting this evening.
