Fair Housing Month: On The Horizon
3-D printed homes implemented across the US
Repurposed shipping container homes implemented across the US
As a leader and advocate for affordable housing in Cuyahoga County, LMM is continually exploring ways to grow and advance the affordable housing space.

As part of Fair Housing Month 2022, LMM is taking to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to share more about the innovative housing projects we're working on to make affordable housing accessible. Some of these projects include launching housing initiatives involving technologies such as 3-D printing, CNC, modular homes and container homes. LMM is also researching and exploring how to maximize a $1.25mil capital grant awarded by the Dept. of Veterans Affairs to renovate our veterans' shelter accommodations.
