KENAI- Plans are moving forward for low-income housing in Ninilchik.

The Alaska Housing Finance Corp. has awarded grant money to seven projects statewide, including the $924,000, six-unit building Inlet Ridge in Ninilchik.
Construction is expected to start in 2015, but officials say it could start as early as this year.
There will be one-, two- and three-bedroom units, which will vary in price according to tenants' incomes and other factors. Ground floor units will be equipped to house mobility-, visually- or hearing-impaired tenants.
Other projects that were awarded funding were: three in Anchorage for a total of 113 new units, a 32-unit property in Haines, a 22-unit facility in Juneau and six new rental units in Delta Junction.
