The McGregor Foundation, CHN partner and sister nonprofit, received $3.46 million in funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on Wednesday, February 12, 2020. The announcement was delivered by Pamela Ashby of HUD. The funding will be used to create more affordable housing for seniors in East Cleveland.
The McGregor Senior Independent Living building is the second time CHN and McGregor worked together to ensure low-income seniors have a place to age with dignity. This is vital as there is a growing need for senior housing.
“By 2030, one in five Americans will be over age 65, and our nation will face a severe shortage of appropriate housing to meet their needs.” said CHN Executive Director, Kevin Nowak.
“Nonprofit developers like CHN cannot do what we do without HUD’s support,” added Nowak. “We are so grateful.”
The proposed development will provide 106 units of affordable housing on the McGregor campus. Residents will have access to the dedicated staff at McGregor, whose mission is to allow seniors to age successfully in a place they are proud to call home. McGregor, the only PACE (Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) provider in Ohio, is an assembly of independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing allowing residents to remain on the campus despite the level of care they need.
