The City of Houston Department of Housing and Community Development has also allocated $15 million to the project from the Harvey Multifamily Program, a fund raised to aid in the recovery from Hurricane Harvey. Magnificat Houses, Inc.(Magnificat) has partnered with NHPF and is providing the land for the development. Additionally, the Houston Housing Authority has allocated 149 project-based vouchers that will allow the development to house the most vulnerable, chronically homeless people.

Ray Miller, the Assistant Director for Multifamily Housing and Public Facilities at the City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department added, “We can think of no better use for disaster relief funds than to provide them for housing dedicated to the chronically homeless.”
