When an apartment complex in Batesville, MS was in desperate need of repairs, HOPE stepped up to secure a $500,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas. In the small town of 7,500 with a poverty rate of almost 30%, Skyview Apartments will provide 102 units of affordable housing to low-income families and elderly residents. The project also benefited from an allocation of Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the Mississippi Home Corporation.
HOPE is committed to making safe and affordable housing available to the most vulnerable families and communities in the Mid South. Projects like Skyview improve the quality of life for families in distressed communities and help families take the first steps to climbing out of poverty. Read more here.
