The Oregon State Housing Council approved funding for a Hood River farmworker housing project on Friday.
Columbia Cascade Housing Corp. acquired a grant reservation of $500,000 in Trust Fund monies and $440,072 of Housing Preservation Funds for the acquisition and rehabilitation of WyEast Vista Apartments, which serves farmworker families.
WyEast is the only dedicated farm labor project in Hood River, with 12 of the 25 units receiving project-based rental assistance. The funds will be used to rehabilitate the units and preserve affordability for at least 20 years.
