Wind River Reservation, Wyoming


The Wyoming Community Development Authority awarded nearly $8 million in grants and tax credits to four Fremont County housing projects. Among them were the College Hill Limited Partnership, of Riverton, which received $480,000 for a 40-unit development; the Eastern Shoshone Housing Authority, of Fort Washakie, which received $250,000 for 10 new single-family homes; and the town of Shoshoni, which was given $481,600 for eight multi-family senior citizen units. Tax credits totaling $115,825 will be used for rehabilitation of 20 existing multi-family units at Beaver Creek housing, managed by the Northern Arapaho Tribe, and $321,901 to the College Hill development. "Our mission at WCDA is to help provide affordable housing for this state's citizens," said George Axlund, executive director. "We are excited about supporting these projects, as they are meeting Wyoming's diverse housing needs."
