LDS Church Funding Idaho Shelter
(Two Idaho Lenders Receive Affordable Housing Grants)
Excite News (Business Wire) 15Jun00 D1

NAMPA, IDAHO -- The LDS Church is helping to fund a temporary shelter for homeless women and families here through the Salvation Army. According to a description of the project, the Church has provided funding to the Salvation Army for its 'Salvation Army Temporary Housing' project. The construction of the project was scheduled to begin in the Spring of this year.

The $884,000 project will provide housing for 12 homeless families and eight homeless women. The facility will feature 12 family sleeping rooms and two dormitory-style rooms for eight women. To qualify for the temporary housing, residents' annual income must be 30 percent or less of area media income, or about $14,500 for a family of four and $10,200 for an individual. The project will also require that residents participate in a self sufficiency program.

In addition to the LDS Church, funding is being provided by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle through its Affordable Housing Program, the IHFA Affordable Housing Investment Fund and CDBG. Construction is expected to be completed by this coming winter.
