The housing tax credits for 2022 were first given out by the Iowa Finance Authority in August, but one project decided not to take the award. The project that received the next-highest rating was NEX Senior.

According to Ellen McCabe, executive director of the Housing Trust Fund of Johnson County, the NEX Senior project has been brought to the authority three times in the last three years.

“Regardless of income, age, or ZIP code, all Johnson County residents should have access to safe and affordable housing. Although there is still more work to be done, NEX Senior will assist numerous Johnson County seniors in achieving this goal, according to Sara Barron, executive director of the Johnson County Affordable Housing Coalition.
