The New Albany Redevelopment Commission has moved to use grant funding to help support construction of a new Habitat for Humanity headquarters. The board will use a $500,000 American Rescue Plan grant to help with construction.
The city says the new building will offer classrooms and warehouse and workshop space in order to store building materials.
“Recent investments, both public and private, are fueling growth in New Albany,” stated Mayor Jeff Gahan. “Affordable housing options are key to our continued success. This new partnership with Habitat for Humanity will ensure new housing options well into the future.”
The new headquarters will be built along Barack Obama Way in the city’s industrial park.
