PHOENIX – Maricopa County is making a $3.1 million investment in more than 200 new affordable housing units — townhouses and apartments — in south Phoenix.
The funding, which comes from the American Rescue Plan Act, was earmarked for townhouses and apartments on Broadway Road between Seventh and Central Avenues, the county said in a press releaseWednesday.
The county’s Human Services Department is partnering with Chicanos Por La Causa to develop the projects.
“As we allocate money, we are looking at barriers to homeownership and the rentals in this tight housing market,” Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates said in the release.
