PIH and CPD Make Transformative Investments in Knoxville

Knoxville Tennessee’s Western Heights and Beaumont communities will be transformed thanks to support of HUD’s Public & Indian Housing Choice Neighborhoods and Community Planning and Development’s Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. Together these investments will create 196 units of affordable housing in Knoxville, removing 1940’s era public housing with new high-quality, energy-efficient and mixed income apartments along with a community anchor building and world-class destination park. The groundbreaking was held August 3 and reflects a $40 million HUD investment with the City of Knoxville and Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation, with over $220 million in public and private funding committed to supporting the redevelopment plan.
