KENAI – Plans are moving forward for low-income housing in Ninilchik.

The Alaska Housing Finance Corp. has awarded grant money to seven projects statewide, including the $924,000, six-unit building Inlet Ridge in Ninilchik.

The Peninsula Clarion reports construction is expected to start in 2015, but officials say it could start as early as this year.

There will be one-, two- and three-bedroom units, which will vary in price according to tenants’ incomes and other factors. Ground floor units will be equipped to house mobility-, visually- or hearing-impaired tenants.

Other projects that were awarded funding were: three in Anchorage for a total of 113 new units, a 32-unit property in Haines, a 22-unit facility in Juneau and six new rental units in Delta Junction.
