GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) - Subsidized housing options in southeast Grand Rapids have expanded. LINC Community Revitalization, a non-profit group, on Monday celebrated move-in day for a dozen or so families.
LINC helped build new apartments in the Madison Square area, part of an ongoing effort to strengthen the neighborhood.
One of the couples moving in was Terrell and Candace Dismuke. They have two children and had waited for the past year for the apartments to be finished.
"It changed my family; they gave us a home for my family. We went from a small place to a home," they said.
LINC says it's helped build 36 town homes and a new four-story mixed use building in Madison Square.
"This is quality rental housing -- something Grand Rapids needs more of as a community," said LINC's Jeremy DeRoo.
