State Rep. Gayle Manning (R-North Ridgeville) announces that the state Controlling Board approved $500,000 in funding for a local community housing project set to create a complex with 62 units located in Elyria.
The initiative will serve individuals who are homeless, have a disabling condition of mental illness, substance abuse, developmental disability or physical health issues. Additionally, on-site social services will be available.
“The project aims to bring structure and stability, while providing the much needed treatment to the residents who will reside in the complex,” said Manning. “With COVID-19, mental health has become an even more serious issue and I am very pleased to see an investment within our community to help those who suffer from such illnesses.”
The release of funding is for the State Assistance for Community Behavioral Health Facilities project that includes this permanent supportive housing for EDEN, Inc., which is a non-profit contract agency of the Cuyahoga County ADAMHS Board.
Eden Inc. has agreed to provide permanent supportive housing at this location for the next thirty years.
