Thank you to everyone who made the trip to Berea last week to participate in the Spring Retreat! We had a great meeting, had some insightful discussions around exciting work focusing on Social Enterprise, Elder Housing with Services, and Job Training with Recovery and Housing, and had time for the staff to meet and mingle with the Members. Please check the website early next week for postings of the group notes.

News from Community Lending Services!

From Dwain: The Fahe Loan Committee met on April 18th approving up to $8,490,350 in construction funding for Fahe Member Kentucky River Foothills Development Council’s “Workforce Pathway at Kit Carson Commons” project on the Eastern Kentucky University campus in Richmond, KY.  The facility is modeled after their recently completed Eastern Scholar House; Kit Carson Commons will create 30 units of affordable housing, with a preference for Veterans, paired with publically available conference and training space to be used in workforce development training.

Dwain also shared a NEW OPPORTUNITY for the Membership at our Spring Retreat – see HERE for details!
