Fresno Housing Authority Wins Award of Excellence for Affordable Housing
(Washington D.C.-Nov. 17, 2020)- Fresno Housing Authority’s Renaissance at Parc Grove is a housing community that serves veterans, including many who are experiencing homelessness. This first-of-its-kind construction in the Central Valley is a 2020 recipient of the Award of Excellence for Affordable Housing by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO).
“This year’s award-winning agencies have given us innovative local solutions for increasing affordable housing stock and improving the lives of their residents,” NAHRO President Sunny Shaw said. “I am excited to honor them for their excellence.”
The affordable housing development for veterans was also one of the first construction projects to use Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention program funds. The site offers free services, health and wellness programming, and on-site case management. Currently, Renaissance at Parc Grove houses about 40 veterans.
“NAHRO members have always been in the business of providing homes and improving lives – these awards commemorate shining examples of the vital work they do nationwide,” NAHRO CEO Adrianne Todman said. “My sincere congratulations to this year’s winners.”
