GULFPORT — The Governor’s Office reports that about 1,000 affordable housing units on the Gulf Coast have been completed with yesterday’s opening of 120 new units at Gulfport’s Regency Way Apartments complex.
The Mississippi Development Authority’s (MDA) Public Housing Grant Program administered the project, and was funded through Mississippi’s $5.4-billion federally provided Hurricane Katrina recovery package.
The Regency Way Apartments, located on 28th Street, is part of a $100-million public housing recovery effort to ensure Coast residents have a variety of post-Katrina affordable housing options.
