Preservation Celebration
On June 1, 2017, Kathy Peters, executive director of KHC, spoke during Winterwood Inc.'s Preservation Portfolio Grand Reopening Ceremony at Brayton Apartments in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. This is one of 18 aged USDA Rural Development Section 515 affordable housing properties that was revitalized in 14 counties across the state. The total portfolio revitalized 563 apartment units. Financing included sources such as 4 percent Tax Credits, tax-exempt bonds, USDA Rural Housing Service Section 515 loans, USDA Section 538 Guaranteed loans, HOME funding, with other sources of funding totaling $64.4 million. 

It takes a supportive community, a creative assortment of funding sources, and successful partnerships to preserve affordable housing. May the new life that has been breathed into each property, and our host, Brayton Apartments, bring those who will live here much comfort and happiness.
