Senior Citizens Affordable Housing Project Launched with $14 Million Grant in Ohio

Columbus, OH: CMHA launched a Senior Affordable Housing Community with $14 Million support to give the elderly of Columbus a place to live that is both inexpensive and secure.

On Tuesday, officials from Franklinton’s McKinley Manor celebrated its grand opening with their counterparts from the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority as well as those from the state and county.

Rentals for those over the age of 55 with low or fixed incomes will be available in the 44-unit affordable housing complex that is part of the $14 million project.

Columbus, Franklin County, Marble Cliff Capital, Park National Bank, the Affordable Housing Trust for Columbus and Franklin County, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, and the City of Columbus have all contributed financially and invested in the public-private initiative.

Thirteen-year-tenant Sean Butler said that it was a truly transformative experience. “I’m very well pleased and feel fortunate to be a partaker of this part of the American dream, affordable housing.”

According to CMHA leaders, there is a disproportionate number of vulnerable seniors in the Franklinton community, where McKinley Manor is situated, who are struggling to pay for housing and deal with long-term health problems. They have faith that the complex would offer a decent place to live where a lot of people can be self-sufficient.

Bricks and sticks aren’t all it is. Ohio Senator Hearcel Craig has stated that this is a chance for our most defenseless citizens, our elderly, to live in homes that are decent, safe, and magnificent.

  • Very low income (at or below 30% and 50% of median income), or low income (typically at or below 60% of median income; but as high as 80% of median income with compliance with average income policies)
