The Business Development program provides training, research data, technical assistance and micro-loans to Lawrence entrepreneurs and financial coaching participants planning to open or expand a business.
Another one of our key community development initiatives is affordable housing through which we built several new homes on Acton and Park Streets in the Arlington neighborhood. In the past 5 years alone ACT has built affordable housing in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity, private sector developers and court appointed receivers to rehabilitate and complete affordable housing such as the Park Street Projects and Acton Street projects, with others under development. Our properties are multi-family units that are also compatible with the community's character and vision with providing new housing choices for low-income people. All of our housing were sold to low to moderate-income families.
