Hud Grant for Baltimore Assisted Living Facility
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a grant for more than $5 million to convert an existing Baltimore multifamily project ( N.M. Carroll Manor Apartments $5,020,436) into an assisted living facility for the elderly.
The Assisted Living Conversion Program grant funds will be used for the conversion of apartments in this 100-unit, 7-story building to units that will serve the frail elderly.
The planned conversion involves 16 existing elderly housing units on Floors 1 and 2 into 16 fully accessible units for the frail elderly. A Medical Care Room and Community Room are also included in the conversion.
Unit modifications include widening of doors and bathroom/kitchen improvements. Upon completion, the 16 Assisted Living Care Apartments will be licensed as a Supportive Housing (SH)/Assisted Living Services Program in accordance with the Maryland Department of Aging.
The unit conversions, medical care area and community room will facilitate the delivery of services in an economic manner and accommodate the future needs of the residents as they age in place in a safe, decent and affordable environment.
