LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Changes are on the way for two affordable housing options in Lee County. 

Southward Village is a public housing complex off Edison Avenue, where changes are on the way.  

$5 million dollars will go to the Southwest Florida Affordable Housing Choice Foundation. 

Those funds will help preserve and reconstruct units in Southward Village.

The funds will help preserve and construct public housing units at Southward Village. It currently has 195 units. 

According to the county, 195 units will be reconstructed and 185 units will be added in the same community.

They’ll be rented out and sold to households with incomes at or below the area median income.  

$2.5 million will also go to Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties to build 36 single-family homes. 

Both will receive funding through December 31 of next year.
