AFL-CIO HIT Invests $10 Million To Preserve Affordable Housing For Ohio Seniors At Mayfield Manor

The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) is investing $10 million towards a $14 million project to rehabilitate the Mayfield Manor Apartments in Canton, Ohio, and keep 144 units affordable for current residents at the senior citizen facility for 20 years. The project is expected to create 100 union construction jobs in an area hard-hit by the economic slowdown. The scope of work includes exterior and interior repairs and upgrades as well as a number of improvements to reduce the building’s energy consumption such as new energy efficient windows and doors, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and more efficient heating systems. Mayfield Manor Apartments is one of the latest projects financed under the HIT’s Green Jobs Initiative. The energy retrofits financed through this initiative support the AFL-CIO’s broader commitment to create construction jobs while conserving energy and reducing buildings’ operating costs.
