COTTONWOOD, Ariz. — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
has awarded a $1.7 million grant to a nonprofit in Cottonwood to convert
existing housing into senior assisted living apartments.
A HUD official said the grant to Christian Care Cottonwood, Inc., will pay for
the conversion of 20 units.
The money is among $26 million awarded to owners of multi-family housing
developments in nine states on Thursday. It will pay for them to convert some or
all their apartments into homes fit for seniors.
HUD assistant secretary Carol Galante said there’s a growing demand for such
housing as the nation’s population ages.
