Vote delayed to approve funds for South Bend permanent supportive housing
SOUTH BEND, Ind.--A vote to approve funds for a permanent supportive housing project in South Bend was delayed on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for the city.
Originally, the city had set aside $1.5 million for a gateway center for community members who are experiencing homelessness but efforts to find a location for the project failed.
Now, $1 million of those funds are being slated to go towards rehabilitation efforts like roofing, masonry and exterior fire stairs at one of the Gemini Apartment buildings near West Washington Street, according to the city.
Six of the units in the Gemini building have been slated to become permanent supportive housing.
The vote to approve the money has been delayed for one month.
