They also purchased a property on 4th street in The Dalles and with the help of the North Central Oregon Attainable Housing Development Revolving Loan Funds, the project is addressing a segment of the market that has been under served. C&E LLC plans to rehabilitate the existing property into six units. There will be two studio units, three 1-bedroom units, and one 2-bedroom unit. The units will range from 274 sq. ft. to 552 sq. ft.
Through the North Central Oregon Attainable Housing Development Revolving Loan Program, MCEDD offers flexible financing for housing development and housing rehabilitation in Hood River, Wasco and Sherman counties. The fund is designed to aid in addressing the regional attainable housing challenge by spurring development of housing at rates affordable to those who live and work in the region (generally 60-120% of median family income). MCEDD also has a Business Loan Program that is available to entrepreneurs, start up businesses and existing businesses doing business in the five county (Sherman, Hood River, Wasco, Klickitat and Skamania) Mid-Columbia Area. Both of these loan programs are part of MCEDD’s efforts to strengthen and support the region’s economy. Contact MCEDD at 541-296-2266.?
