Vancouver Housing Authority was among nine agencies statewide that received grants and loans from the state Department of Commerce.

The department announced Friday that its $22.8 million in funding would provide an estimated 301 multifamily rental units and 80 seasonal farmworker beds.

Vancouver Housing Authority received $3 million for its 40-unit Tenny Creek Assisted Living project, which will house people with chronic mental illnesses. At its meeting Thursday, the agency’s board of directors is slated to approve the purchase of land in Hazel Dell for the project.

“Building and preserving an adequate inventory of subsidized affordable housing units is one of our critical strategies to make housing available for everyone,” Commerce Director Brian Bonlender said in a news release. “We also continue to work to support housing markets with prices that are affordable. That strengthens communities by making us more competitive for job growth and enabling more Washingtonians to participate in our prosperity.”

Funding comes from the state and federal Housing Trust Funds and federal HOME program.
