The Future Is In Our Hands
In 2016, we submitted an application for tax credits to rehabilitate the Ward Downtown YMCA and add housing to the facility. We have been notified by the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) that our application was not selected for funding during this cycle. Although disappointing, we knew this was possible with our first application.
Moving forward, we are committed to another year of supporting this effort. Our next step is to begin the process of better understanding how we can strengthen our application for the next funding cycle. We are greatly encouraged by the interest the MHDC showed throughout this process.
The Ward Downtown YMCA will remain open, committed to bringing you the same programs and services that have impacted so many lives in our community. We are proud of our history of service, and we look forward to continuing that work.
Thank you for being part of the YMCA, and for your continuous support. We look forward to a great 2017.
