Market Study Leads To New Low-Income Housing Project

A few additional Madison-area families now have a roof over their head thanks to a special housing project.

The non-profit Movin’ Out Inc. hosted an open house for its 33-unit affordable housing project in Stoughton. The project, called Elven Sted, houses low-income families and people with disabilities.

The non-profit organization said the community needs this kind of housing.

“We had a market study that showed that we had a lot of people who work at Stoughton but live in other communities, Beloit or other small communities, because they couldn’t find a place that they both could afford and that had the kind of amenities that they wanted and they found that here,? said Howard Mandeville, of Movin? Out, Inc.

The project’s funds come from Dane County Human Services, low-income tax credits, and the city of Stoughton.

Elven Sted cost about $7.5 million dollars to build.
