William G. Schnute Apartments
Schnute Apartments are home to an engaging and friendly group of residents. With a Wesselman’s Supermarket and a Buehler’s Buy-Low, both less than a mile away and many churches nearby including Johnson Temple Church of God across the street and Trinity Lutheran Church around the corner, you won’t have to travel far from home for life’s necessities. There’s also a bus stop just outside the front door to make the location even more convenient.
The complex places an emphasis on resident security with a key card required to get into the building, and a manager’s office on-site to take care of issues that may arise. Schnute Apartments also encourages residents to participate in recreation with their neighbors. There are many activities going on regularly in the Community Room such as bingo, crafts, Bible studies, and movies.
Schnute Apartments offers income-based apartments, all of which come with appliances including heating and air conditioning. Phone, cable television, and internet services are available through Insight communications, and meal services are available through SWIRCA.
The complex has a 2 bedroom unit, 23 units with 1 bedroom, and 91 efficiency units. There are laundry facilities located on-site for resident use.
Public housing units across the country need more than $26 billion in repairs. HUD refers to these repair costs as capital needs. Congress has not provided enough funding for PHAs to keep up with capital needs. As a result, PHAs have had to make tough choices between things like repairing roofs and replacing plumbing—or worse, demolishing public housing. RAD provides PHAs a way to rehabilitate, or repair, units without depending on additional money from Congress.
This allows us to use the tax credits to leverage private funding, as well as other sources of private investments, to perform $17.6 million in needed repairs during Phase 1 of RAD. Just as importantly, this approval helps to ensure ongoing funding for public housing property maintenance and repair.
Unique features include a new state of the art geothermal heating a cooling system which will provide a more energy efficient method of heating and cooling for our residents. This system will reduce the overall operating expenses for the project and improve the quality of our living spaces for our residents.
This project was financed by the sale of low-income tax credits, energy tax credits, a HUD insured 221(d)(4) mortgage, IHCDA Development Funds, deferred development fee, and seller financing, Operations is funded by Project Base Housing Choice Vouchers and tenant paid rents.
