KDVA Homes

KDVA Homes project completed!
Domestic violence survivors in Louisville, Morehead, Murray and Paducah moved into brand new energy-efficient apartments throughout the summer of 2011.  The housing is part of KDVA Homes, an $8.8 million scattered-site housing project with 48 permanent supportive housing units.
The scattered-site project includes:

  • 22 units at the Center for Women and Families in Louisville
  • 12 units at Merryman House in Paducah
  •  8 units in Murray
  •  6 units at DOVES in Morehead

Residents, whose incomes must be at or below 60 percent of area median income, will be able to participate in KDVA’s Economic Empowerment Project, which includes financial education, credit counseling, free tax-preparation and the opportunity to open Individual Development Accounts.  
KDVA Homes is a Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) project. KHC provided tax credits, federal funds and a low-interest loan from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund. The Housing Partnership Inc., a nonprofit developer of affordable housing, is developing the housing with KDVA. The Federation of Appalachian Housing Enterprises (FAHE) in Berea is the project syndicator.  Bosse Mattingly Constructors in Louisville is the general contractor. Jim Burris, of Frankfort, is the project architect.
