Gainesville Housing Authority and partners team up to add more affordable housing

October 14, 2021

The Gainesville Housing Authority has joined forces with the Gainesville Housing Development Management Corporation to construct an affordable housing project geared toward low income, elderly and disabled residents of Alachua County. The units come equipped with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The two organizations recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the TRIO North Lincoln Heights project. The ceremony was held last month at 1629 SE Fourth Ave, and drew quite a crowd. Several dozen people, ranging from local officials to pleased civilians, stopped by to extend their support.

The money required to pull off the project was a true team effort. The Gainesville Housing Authority and the Gainesville Housing Development Management Corporation were aided by the city of Gainesville, as well as the Alachua County Board of Commissioners.

The land itself was a donation from the city of Gainesville, which also chipped in an additional $15,000 towards the project. Alachua County added $150,000 from its State Housing Initiatives Partnership Program, while the Gainesville Housing Development Management Corporation allocated $273,500 for the project.

The Gainesville Housing Authority has more such projects in the works, according to Malcolm Kiner, the GHA's vice president of real estate development.
