Top Seven Myths About Public Housing
A Success Story

Over the past four years the Housing Authority of Covington in partnership with the Model Group and the City of Covington acquired and renovated more than 70 abandoned and neglected buildings through the Eastside Revitalization Project. This $16 million dollar initiative saved all of these historic properties from demolition. In recognition of these efforts we received the prestigious Ida Lee Willis Memorial Foundation Award at a ceremony in Frankfort on May 24, 2011. Proudly displaying the award are representatives from the Model Group and the Housing Authority (Pictured above from left to right are Matt Reckman, Model Group; Aaron Wolfe-Bertling, Housing Authority of Covington; David Thompson, Model Group; Tom Schmitz, Housing Authority of Covington; and Deanna Heil, City Studios Architect)
