Tamarack place, an 83-unit, low-income housing complex with 10,000 sq ft of retail space in Seattle, got an infusion of cash through a $7-million award from the $13.5 million in stimulus funds the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development gave to the Seattle Housing Authority. An additional $6.5 million will fund infrastructure on the northern portion of the site.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding “allows us to make up for the loss of funds caused by the economic downturn. Now we can take advantage of reduced construction costs to complete this,” says Rebecca Whitney, SHA senior housing developer.
