Hebron House of Hospitality was given $1.298 million in capital costs and $90,600 in a three-year rental subsidy for a project that will construct two home-like apartment buildings with four one-bedroom units that will have accessible front doors for low-income disabled people.
“The units are located directly across from Horeb Spring Park,” the release states. “Public transportation is available within walking distance and the downtown business district is within one-half mile as well. The building is designed to Bronze certification standards for green buildings.”
Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin is being awarded $1.136 million with $90,600 in a three-year rental subsidy for its apartment building for low-income, disabled people that will have eight one-bedroom units.

The eight units are designed to achieve the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Bronze Green Building Guidelines certification.”
