MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Work is due to begin within a month on a Muncie supportive housing project more than three years in the planning that’s aimed at reducing homelessness.

Meridian Health Services Vice President of Clinical Services Gerry Cyranowski says the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority awarded the project called Walnut Commons the low-income housing tax credits that it needs to go forward.

Cyranowski tells The Star Press his nonprofit agency will provide the residents with health care, addiction treatment and other services to help them stay independent.

UP Development LLC of Chicago will develop, own and operate the 44-unit, $7 million downtown apartment building.

The first tenants are expected to move in during the spring of 2015.
