SUBJECT:

Additional Affordable Housing Units for St. John's Seminary and Brookwood Senior Apartments.


SUMMARY:

An Ordinance approving two forgivable loans to the San Antonio Housing Public Facilities Corporation (SAHTPFC) to facilitate 18 housing units that will be leased to individuals or families making 30% AMI or below at the St. John's Seminary and Brookwood Senior Apartments projects.
