First project using city affordable housing funds opens in Vancouver

The Columbian

Meadow Homes — Meriwether Place, the first housing project to be completed using city of Vancouver Affordable Housing Fund money, opened Aug 22. The building, at 6221 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd., is a three-story, 30-unit development providing permanent supportive housing to low-income and formerly homeless individuals. The project was developed by the Vancouver Housing Authority and Columbia Non-Profit Housing. All 30 units serve households at or below 50 percent of area median income, and 15 units are designated for households at or below 30 percent. Twenty-three units provide permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals facing mental health challenges. The location also provides access to nearby social services, grocery stores and public transit. The project was financed through a mix of public and private funding sources, including low-income housing tax credits, in addition to the city’s Affordable Housing Fund. The Affordable Housing Fund was created when Vancouver voters approved Proposition 1 in November 2016.
