A major addition to the East Bluff.
Councilman Tim Riggenbach says its the first major addition to the area in nearly two decades.
“Sixteen units that are now completed and are available for rent for people with disabilities,” says Councilman Tim Riggenbach. He and local nonprofits held a ribbon cutting for the grand openings.
The project, called Access Peoria, consists of 8 duplexes, which provide 16 rental units consisting of one and two bedrooms. All duplexes are wheelchair accessible with green design features and are available to persons with different types of disabilities. This project is part of IFF’s Home First initiative, whose mission is to give individuals with disabilities community-based housing options.
Through Home First, IFF acquires, develops and owns integrated homes that remain permanently affordable to low-income people with disabilities, with a focus on expanding the availability of accessible housing. To date, IFF has secured over $50 million in financing to develop 266 units in Illinois for residents.
Partially funded by a $3 million grant, a project consisting of eight duplexes has opened for those with disabilities. The East Bluff Neighborhood Housing Service and Greater Peoria LISC, Midwest nonprofit IFF celebrates the grand opening of the $4 million affordable housing project for persons with disabilities
