Carthage needs more, affordable housing for Senior Citizens. Is anything being done about this issue?

I haven't been directly involved in much of this, but there is a housing working committee from the Carthage Round Table. I know that Senior Housing is a big topic, but it's a fairly involved issue. On the one hand, you need lots of affordable housing, but on the other hand, it has to be built first, and that is anything BUT affordable.



There are a number of state and federal funding possibilities, but all have their strict requirements of what the group/organization putting such a program together can do. So, to make a long answer as short as possible: Yes, it IS being worked, but no "white knight" has magically appeared to make it all happen.



Again, for details of current progress notes, and needs, contact Brenda at 357-3800. Or, maybe she'll see this post and jump in with some additional information...
