Urban League Partners to Provide Affordable Housing in Lexington

January 10, 2024

A consortium of local banks has created a $3 million revolving capital fund – initially including Central Bank, Community Trust Bank, Republic Bank & Trust, Stock Yards Bank and Traditional Bank – so multiple local affordable housing developers can create a mix of rental and homeownership opportunities. Lexington affordable housing developers collaborating on the project include the Urban League of Lexington, AU Associates, Habitat for Humanity, and Winterwood. As the project gets underway, developers will repay the fund interest-free, allowing for re-investment in future affordable housing projects. You can read more about this announcement on Commerce Lexington’s NEWS PAGE HERE or view the press conference in its entirety ON-LINE HERE. Kudos to all involved who seized the opportunity to make this possible, and I look forward to many more announcements like this in the future.

On October 23, 2023, the Urban League hosted its 55th Annual Empowerment Banquet with 370 of our closest friends and partners in attendance. Dr. Roger Cleveland delivered the keynote address which challenged us to do more than draft and adopt a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement. He challenged everyone to take action, and become part of the solution and not the status quo.

Mr. Jim Host received the 2023 Community Service Award. Mr. Larry Forester was recognized as an outgoing board of directors member for six years.

The Urban League would like to express its genuine appreciation to everyone who supported the event.
