San Bernardino County announced last week, they have secured a $23.6 million grant to help fund the $50.1 million, 80-unit Liberty Lane veteran’s housing project in Redlands.
“Ensuring that veterans have adequate housing is the least we can do for those who served our country,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Dawn Rowe. “Liberty Lane will bring much needed housing and supportive services to the County’s homeless veterans, as well as individuals with special needs and low-income families.”
Liberty Lane, slated for the corner of Texas Street and West Lugonia Avenue in Redlands, will consist of five two-story buildings comprised of 80 apartment units and a 4,906 square-foot community building. The development will have 60 one-bedroom units, 19 two-bedroom units, and one three-bedroom unit.
The developer, A Community of Friends, has secured a total of $13.7 million of state Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention funding for Liberty Lane to complement a $6.1 million funding commitment from the Board of Supervisors.
Construction is scheduled to begin in April 2023. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2024.
