Funding announced for affordable housing complex in Moncton


The New Brunswick and federal governments have announced funding for a new affordable housing complex in Moncton for adults with physical disabilities.

Provincial Social Development Minister Dorothy Shephard says the complex will consist of 40 subsidized units, including 10 that are fully accessible and 23 that will be partially accessible.

Shephard says the MacDonald Centre for Independent Living will also have 24-hour, on-site attendant support services.

Funding for the complex is being provided under a 10-year, bilateral affordable housing agreement.
