The Brownsville Senior Project located in the Borough of Brownsville, Fayette County, has been awarded $750,000 in PennHOMES funding and $692,279 in low income tax credits through the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, for the construction of affordable housing units for senior citizens, according to Senator Pat Stefano (R-32).
Stefano said the funding and tax credits will be used by the Trek Development Group to provide housing for low-to-moderate income seniors age 62 and older at a 24-unit senior rental complex
The historic rehab associated with the project includes new construction and mixed-use development, incorporating retail space on the first floor and the addition of 17 new parking spaces.
“I am pleased that local officials, Rep. Pam Snyder and I were able to work together to bring this funding to Brownsville to aid in their revitalization,” Stefano said. “This is cooperation at its finest.”
“This funding will help to provide affordable rental housing to our area and help seniors receive other services that they need on site,” Stefano concluded. “It will help to create jobs, improve economic development in this area, and provide a better quality of life for many seniors.
