The City of Albany is pleased to be partnering with the Farmworker Housing Development Corporation (FHDC.org) to apply for the Pathways to Removing Obstacles to Housing (PRO Housing) federal grant allocated through the Community Development Block Grant program. The PRO Housing grant program is dedicated to helping communities remove barriers to affordable housing production and preservation. For more information about the PRO Housing grant, please refer to the HUD PRO Housing website.
The city applied for $1,857,653 for funding to extend Goldfish Farm Road, sidewalks, bike lanes, and a public sewer main through the project site, south to Spicer Drive. The cost of extending public infrastructure can be a substantial barrier to new affordable housing development. Alleviating these costs will enable up to 162 units of affordable housing to be developed, including both rental and homeownership housing options for the future Colonia Solidaridad community.
