Kentucky Habitat for Humanity is launching a three-year initiative aimed at accelerating construction of affordable housing. Habitat is joining about 50 non-profit housing providers. The formal announcement of the 2020 Housing Vision project came Monday at the state capitol.
Governor Matt Bevin says the Commonwealth’s homelessness problem is troubling. “Kentucky has more homeless students per capita than any state in America. What a tragic and terrible statistic to lead the nation in. This is why this matters. Every single bit of it matters,” said Bevin.
