CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — A large apartment complex development in Central Point promising affordable housing will receive a grant of more than $2.2 million, according to an announcement from Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) on Thursday.

The grant comes from the 2018 federal 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and HOME awards "which leverage local, state, and private investments," according to OHCS.

The City of Central Point approved initial plans for the Creekside Apartments project in April of 2017, submitted by the Housing Authority of Jackson County. Those plans identified a total of eight multi-family buildings in townhouse units and flat apartments, plus a community building, 76 parking spaces, landscaping, pedestrian walkways and a children's play structure.

According to the project's proposal, Creekside will offer a total of 50 units—24 units for tenants with "project-based" rent assistance, 25 which will be affordable to households earning 50 percent area median income (AMI) or less, and one "non-income qualified" unit for an onsite manager.

Among the units will also be eight units of "permanent supportive housing dedicated to homeless veterans using project-based Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers," along with supportive services provided by local housing and veterans officials. There will also be eight units "set aside as Family Strengthening Units, subsidized with project-based vouchers."

The Creekside Apartments are planned for 200 S Haskell St between Ash Street and Cheney Loop.
