A federal grant will soon offer affordable and independent living for some in Traverse City.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently awarded a $60,000 grant to the city housing commission. It will be used to offer about 10 vouchers to the non-elderly within 50 miles of Traverse City to get out of a nursing home and into an apartment. These are people who don’t have a support system allowing them to have a place of their own.
