Low-income Housing Units In The South Valley Receive Upgrades


KUNM (KRQE) — ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico Renovating low-income housing in the South Valley was a collaborative effort between the State of New Mexico, Bernalillo County, and the City of Albuquerque. The completion of the project was commemorated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony that took place on Monday by BernCo officials.

A number of improvements were made to El Centro Familiar Senior Housing, including the installation of new windows, sliding glass doors, upgraded sidewalks, thermostats, walk-in showers, gutters, and roofing.

District 2 Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada used the opportunity to convey his satisfaction with the work that is being done in this location. As a result of the fact that the South Valley has frequently been neglected by significant programs such as this one, I am pleased to see Bernalillo County and the state working together to provide the locals with the same conveniences that other people may take for granted.

The modifications, according to the officials, would result in an improvement in the citizens’ quality of life.

“This project has also helped to address the increased welfare of tenants here, as well as the long-term sustainability of these residences,” said Amanda Colburn, the Deputy Director of the Housing Department. “These residences serve people with disabilities and seniors with low incomes.”

A total of seventy-five units were enhanced. A grant from the community development block program provided more than one million dollars to finance the renovation.
