The Department of Local Affairs has announced that $1,609,675 in Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds has been awarded to Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network for the following project:

Arapahoe/Douglas Mental Health Network (ADMHN) received a grant of $1,609,675 in Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds to acquire and rehabilitate Fox Street Apartments. The property is located at 5386-5388 S. Fox Street in Littleton, Arapahoe County. It has 2 buildings with 8 units each, with 8 one bedroom apartments and 8 two bedroom apartments. One unit will be set aside for an on-site manager earning up to 120% AMI, and the other 15 units will serve households at 50% AMI or lower. Some of these apartments will be available to those who receive services at ADMHN and who have demonstrated their readiness for independent living. ADMHN management will provide building supervision, and in particular, support for ADMHN clients to ensure their success in this environment. Rehab work will include new boilers and new windows to improve the buildings’ energy efficiency.
