The project valuation is $7.2 million, according to the application.

The project is funded by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission’s 9% housing tax credit program and a loan from Catholic Housing Services Eastern Washington.

Mother Teresa Haven’s monthly rent will average $245 for families. Residents will have access to recreational activities as well as on-site counseling, case management and health care services, according to Catholic Charities’ website.

Construction on the project is slated to begin in the summer, with completion by 2022.
