Supportive Housing for Veterans in Decatur


Decatur- A project years in the making is finally ready for the community to see. Organizers have been working on permanent supportive housing for veterans.\

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Tuesday for veterans and everyone who helped with the project.

Veterans who are homeless and/or disabled are welcome. Most of the low income units are already rented and there is a waiting list for the vacant apartments.

The spokeswoman for the Illinois Housing Development Authority said, this project created about 25 construction jobs and 5 permanent jobs for local residents.
