New Affordable Housing Project Breaks Ground

Ground was recently broken on the Canon Perdido Affordable Homes project at 822 and 824 East Canon Perdido Street. Developed by Habitat for Humanity of South Santa Barbara County, the project will include 12 units “that will provide a home-ownership opportunity for families who earn between 40 and 80 percent of the area median income,” according to a statement from the City of Santa Barbara, which provided Habitat for Humanity the funding to buy the property and to cover a portion of the construction costs.
