Sacramento's Mutual Housing California will use grant funds to upgrade local community

Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank recently gave a $15,000 grant to Sacramento-based Mutual Housing California, the nonprofit developer of affordable housing communities, to begin planning “green” renovations at one of its communities.

Mutual Housing said it plans to use the funds to plan and execute upgrades at the 98-apartment Foothill Plaza Mutual Housing Community near Interstate 80 and Madison Avenue in Sacramento.

Officials said the community’s one- to four-bedroom apartments ultimately will receive multiple energy-saving interior renovations, including Energy Star appliances, low-water-flow fixtures and high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.

Grant funds will used to prepare an assessment, develop architectural plans and assemble a financing package for the renovations.
