Alliance Receives $58,700 Grant from Maryland Affordable Housing Trust
December 8, 2010 - Alliance announced today that it has received a grant in the amount of $58,700 from the Maryland Affordable Housing Trust.
The funds will be used to provide affordable housing to people with disabilities in East Baltimore. “This award could not have come at a better time,” said Chris Iweha, manager of Alliance’s residential rehabilitation program in East Baltimore. “The quality of the housing we provide is very important to us, and these funds will help ensure that our residents are safe, secure, and comfortable.
Alliance owns 13 homes in East Baltimore to provide housing to 38 people with serious mental illness, many of whom are transitioning to community living after long-term hospital stays. The Alliance residential program not only provides housing, but also teaches important life skills needed to manage a household and foster independence. Alliance also operates residential rehabilitation programs in Baltimore and Harford Counties providing housing for more than 150 individuals per year. The grant funds will be used to cover costs of maintaining the homes.
The Maryland Affordable Housing Trust was established in 1992 to make affordable housing more available throughout the State of Maryland. The Trust is governed by a Board of Trustees and staffed by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. www.dhcd.maryland.gov
