Project Transitions, a nonprofit providing affordable, supportive housing and hospice care for low-income people with HIV and AIDS in Austin, applied for a $100,000 sub-grant from the Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) to remove the asbestos, as required by state regulations. The cleanup was completed, all required materials submitted and approved, and repayment of the invoices, totaling $100,000 is requested. After abatement and demolition, Project Transitions will build a new facility, providing additional, updated affordable units to residents, helping meet the City’s affordable housing goals, and providing a healthier environment by safely removing hazardous materials.
