Affordable Housing Project in Palm Springs Awarded $6.4 Mil in State Funds, on Track to Break Ground in 2022
West Coast Land Use and Environment Partner Ryan Leaderman was interviewed by KESQ-TV about an affordable housing project in Palm Springs, California, that was recently awarded $6.4 million in funding by the California Department of Housing and Community Development's No Place Like Home Program. Mr. Leaderman serves as vice chair for the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation (WHCHC), the developer of the two-story, 71-unit affordable housing project for seniors. The extra funding allows WHCHC to reserve 25 units as permanent supportive housing for seniors experiencing homelessness. With the project scheduled to break ground in early 2022, Mr. Leaderman expressed his excitement for the road ahead.
"We've long identified Palm Springs as an opportunity area," he remarked. "There is such synergy between Palm Springs and our home base of West Hollywood, we knew that it would be a great fit for all."
