“With the American Rescue Plan allowing for the development of affordable housing, we have a unique, and potentially once in a lifetime, opportunity over the next few years to accomplish things that we have only dreamed of in the past.”
Village on Sage Street
Village at Sage Street made a unique contribution towards meeting the housing needs of low income people in Reno which had been made so evident by this rising tide of homelessness. It brought together many sectors of the community in a collaborative effort that produced 225 additional low income units with a low $400 a month rent, available to individuals with an income under $2,735 per month.
