Pathways Awarded $2.7M to Increase Housing Capacity
SHARE & COMMENT

On March 20, 2012 the Board of Supervisors authorized the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) to utilize federal Community Development Block Grant money in the amount of $2,725,900 to enable Pathway Homes to acquire thirteen scattered-site units.  These units include one single-family home, two townhomes and ten condominiums (eight one-bedroom, and two two-bedroom).  The project will serve 21 income-eligible persons with multiple disabilities and/or homelessness.  Pathway Homes will partner with the Community Services Board and the Office to Prevent and End Homelessness in placing individuals in these homes, and will utilize Consolidated Community Funding Pool funding to assist in providing services.

After tremendous advocacy by our Board and many supportive stakeholders in the community, our voice to support fair housing in our area was echoed throughout the community, resulting in a unanimous approval from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to support this project.  We were also heard throughout the region, as an article in the Washington Post captured this award to Pathway Homes and the community.
