The Reno Housing Authority broke ground today on Railyard Flats, the newest affordable housing complex in Sparks. The site is set to provide 15 brand new units of affordable housing for extremely low to low-income households. This project is an excellent example of one-time funding coupled with the deft ability of RHA and cooperation from the city of Sparks to acquire and begin construction on a missing middle housing infill project.
It is the second RHA groundbreaking using funds from the state of Nevada’s Home Means Nevada Initiative and funds approved by RHA’s Board of Commissioners. Other funding was provided from the Washoe County HOME Consortium.
The project on 10th Street honors Sparks’ rich history as a railroad town and is close to the former railyards that helped develop Sparks into the thriving city we know today. RHA is proud to honor that history with this housing complex.
“These units will provide safe, secure housing for years to come,” says RHA Executive Director Dr. Hilary Lopez. “It’s just one more way RHA works with community partners to advance affordable housing in the region.”
Through projects like this, RHA continues to shape the future of affordable housing in Washoe County.
