CLEVELAND — Affordable housing in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood of Cleveland has finally come one step closer to being a reality as the ribbon was cut at a ceremony Monday attended by Mayor Justin Bibb, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown and others.
The Vía Sana affordable housing project will bring 72 mixed-use apartments to the Clark-Fulton neighborhood developed jointly by The MetroHealth System and The NRP Group.
Sen. Brown was among those who spoke at the ribbon-cutting ceremony about the new housing set to open in the Cleveland area.
“MetroHealth understands that health doesn’t stop at the hospital walls. It’s about so much more than just going to the doctor – including the stability and dignity of having a roof over your head,” said Brown. “This project will mean families will be healthier and more able to live their fullest lives. I’m proud to have worked closely with MetroHealth over the years to support our city, and to fight for federal investments that make projects like this work.”
Councilwoman Jasmin Santana, who represents the neighborhood, said it was critical in Clark-Fulton that quality housing for diverse people of various incomes was available.
“This is the right kind of investment in the neighborhood – one that gives the residents who are here now a better opportunity to stay in the neighborhood in an environment where rents and housing prices are rising,” she said. “Clark-Fulton welcomes all, but we want to create better opportunities for the residents here today. This project is an exceptional addition to our neighborhood, and I thank everyone who has played a part in bringing it together.”
The Vía Sana affordable housing project is still accepting applications for those interested. Applications can be filled out at https://www.viasanaapts.com/
