Sweetwater Place Apartments

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

In 2012, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida received $1.8 million of HUD Section 811 funding to construct 14 apartment units in the City of Clewiston, Florida. Supplementing HUD funding was an additional $200,000 in funding from the Federal Home Loan Bank Atlanta. FHLB funds enabled installation of a metal roof, exterior fencing, emergency generator, upgraded cabinets, ceramic tile in the bath and kitchen, and a larger electric service. The facility is now open and moving in residents who are income eligible and who are physically disabled. The project is one of the first new HUD Section 811 projects to receive green certification under the Florida Green Building Counsel. Ultimately this certification will mean dramatically smaller utility bills which will help both the residents and owner.
