KeyBank to Provide $9.6M in LIHTC Equity for Supportive Housing Development in Cleveland

by Amy Works

CLEVELAND — KeyBank’s community development lending and investing group will provide $9.6 million in the form of Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) equity to help finance Emerald Alliance IX in Cleveland’s Union Miles neighborhood. Upon completion, the project will be renamed Inez Killingsworth Place and offer 66 units of permanent supportive housing, as well as supportive services, to chronically homeless individuals making less than 30, 50 or 60 percent of the area median income.

The project is the ninth permanent supportive housing effort co-developed under the Cuyahoga County Housing First Initiative by the Cleveland Housing Network and Emerald Development and Economic Network. The Housing First model, endorsed by the National Association to End Homelessness, prioritizes securing housing for homeless individuals as quickly as possible. Ryan Olman of KeyBank closed the transaction.
