SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Construction has begun on low-income single family housing west of downtown South Bend.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1KusGoY) financing for the $4.7 million project comes from the Indiana Housing Finance Authority and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis. The city also is helping with a $140,000 tax abatement.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg (BOO’-tah-juhj) called the plan to build 24 homes a good step, saying the city is switching from dealing with collapsing houses to new construction.

The project is a partnership between Neighborhood Development Associates and the South Bend Heritage Foundation. The properties include a number of lots cleared by the city as part of vacant and abandoned housing effort.

Neighborhood Development Associates President Anne Mannix says the construction will give the neighborhood a new feel.
