Some Evansville housing projects are getting a financial boost from the state.
One aims to house chronically homeless people.
Echo Housing’s planned Garvin lofts will reuse a former heating and air building at Iowa and Garvin Streets.
The space will become 27 living units and was awarded more than $1.3 million.
This is in Evansville’s Promise Zone, which is a federal designation highlighting neighborhoods in need of help.
Promise Zone provides a pipeline for federal and state money to the local level.
