State funds will help renovate and rehab housing in downtown Norfolk

Posted:
NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) -

Some recently awarded Government funding will help to renovate and rehabilitate housing in Norfolk, Nebraska's downtown area.

The Nebraska Department of Economic Development announced the funds this week.

The funds awarded this week come from the DED's Nebraska Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

They have given the city nearly $502,000 to be used to rehabilitate, convert and reconstruct two single-family and five multi-family units at several downtown Norfolk locations.

Since this area of town is mostly business buildings, the majority of the renovation units are existing loft apartments that sit above the businesses.

In addition to the affordable housing funds, more than $601,000 from the property owners will complete this project.

Some of the work to be done includes roofing, brick repair, insulation, heating and air work and interior work like plumbing, electrical, windows, flooring and cabinetry.

Economic development officials say eligible participants are those earning incomes at or below 80-percent of the area median income.
