New Directions Housing in Louisville is launching a free home repair program

By meerna Jun12,2024

New Directions Housing Corporation in Louisville received a $1.2 million grant, and the money will go toward helping with renovations for seniors in the community. The grant came from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The program applied for funding in December with the hope that the money would be used to develop and maintain affordable housing and keep seniors in their homes and neighborhoods. “It helps seniors. Some of the most vulnerable people in our community have safer places to live,” said Mayor Craig Greenberg. Seniors selected for the program will receive $5,000 for home repairs and improvements. This will add features such as handrails, ramps, and devices to help transfer people to and from the shower. “When older people cannot stay in their homes, our neighborhoods change. We want to make sure we continue to build safe and affordable homes so people can stay and feel safe in their homes,” said Jennifer Riley Collins, regional administrator for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Thanks to these funds, New Directions will be able to continue their mission in places such as Roosevelt Apartments in the Portland neighborhood, where they plan to build a 36-unit building for seniors. New Directions is the only program in Kentucky to receive this funding.
