A project, bringing affordable and energy efficient homes to Columbia’s north side, receives a sizable gift from the city’s Housing Programs Division.
The division announced Tuesday that it’s given $20,000 to the Cullimore Cottages housing project. The site, which is currently under construction, will include 10 new homes.
The city’s gift was given in honor of Clara Miles, a prominent African American leader who helped establish the Miles Manor subdivision in 1962. The subdivision included 10 local African American families.
The Cullimore Cottages project is named after Dan Cullimore, a longtime supporter of more equitable, affordable, and safer housing in Columbia.
