$1.2 million from the City of Bend is going to block grants for developers who plan to create affordable housing.
The city says this year’s applicants are proposing a large number of affordable housing units
“We received six applications totaling 333 proposed units. So that’s really exciting,” said Mellissa Kamanya, City of Bend Affordable Housing Coordinator.
The applicants have to present their plans before the city’s affordable housing advisory committee, which will decide how the money is distributed.
The decision likely won’t be official until January.
