Affordable Housing Complex Looking for Tenants
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A $9.6 million affordable housing project is finally reaching completion and is open for new tenants. One of the six buildings is ready to be moved into and housing officials are accepting applications. Future residents will have a variety of energy efficient amenities inside each of the 72 units. Based on the combined income of the family, residents will pay a rent that is much lower than market rates. Housing authorities believe this not only helps those families in need, but also the local economy. "Families don't have to spend more than 30 percent or more than 40 percent of their income on rent, so they are able to afford more goods out in the community. They can spend more money at local stores," said Lori Rosendahl with the Grand Junction Housing Authority. The units come in one, two and three bedroom options.
