State of Utah Approves Housing Grant Money for Survivors of Domestic Violence
HOUSING FOR SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
COMING TO UTAH COUNTY
Mountain West Commercial Facilitates Deal with Utah Regional Housing Corporation
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah- Survivors of domestic violence will be receiving more options for safe housing accommodations in Utah County. Recently, the state of Utah approved a grant to help the Utah Regional Housing Corporation purchase multifamily housing units for victims of domestic violence who need an affordable, supportive housing solution.
“Utah Regional Housing Corporation, in partnership with The Refuge Utah, are excited to provide affordable permanent supportive housing to families that have become homeless after experiencing domestic violence,” said Provo City Housing Authority CEO Robert Vernon. “Mary and Bill Street are valued members of our team as we search for and acquire properties to meet the needs of low-income individuals and families in Utah County.”
Mountain West Commercial Real Estate agents Mary and Bill Street represent the Utah Regional Housing Corporation and helped facilitate the acquisition of four 4-plexes (16 units) for the program. The total cost for the 16 units is estimated at $5 million.
Initially, the Corporation asked the Street Team to identify up to $16 million in multifamily housing units for survivors of domestic violence and low-income or the homeless. But ultimately the State of Utah only approved the portion of the Corporation’s grant application for victims of domestic violence. The Corporation plans to apply for future grant money to help those in need.
