AFL-CIO to Invest $10 Million Toward an Ohio Affordable Senior Housing Project
The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is investing $10 million into a $14 million rehabilitation project for the Mayfield Manor Apartments, a senior housing complex in Canton, Ohio. The complex will keep 144 units affordable for current residents for 20 more years.
“Mayfield Manor is an example of the HIT financing energy-saving retrofits to help reduce operating costs and keep housing affordable,” said HIT Investment Officer Chris Shaw.
The HIT worked with AGM Financial Services to secure financing for the project. All of Mayfield’s housing units receive Section 8 rental assistance.
The rehabilitation project will include exterior and interior repairs and upgrades, as well as a number of improvements to reduce the building’s energy consumption, such as new energy-efficient windows and doors, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and more efficient heating systems.
The Elderly Housing Development & Operations Corporation has managed the apartment complex since its completion in 1982.

Lutheran Social Services to Convert Old N.D. High School Into Affordable Senior Housing
Lutheran Social Services Housing is planning an $8.5 million conversion project to turn an old junior high school located in Williston, North Dakota into an affordable senior housing complex. The project will be funded in part by government housing programs and is being developed in collaboration with the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency.
“North Dakota Housing’s financial support leverages other investments, making the development of affordable housing feasible,” said Jolene Kline, NDHFA planning and housing development division director. “Our collaboration with Lutheran Social Services Housing is a great example of how the public and private sector can work together to address a community’s housing needs.”
North Dakota’s Housing Incentive Fund is allocating $200,000, and the project will also get $611,026 in federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, which are expected to generate about $5.5 million in additional equity and lower the project’s debt requirement, allowing the apartments to be rented at “far less than market rate,” says LSSH.
