LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 26, 2018 — Award-winning multi-family housing developer LDG Development and the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) have unveiled an innovative scholarship and professional education initiative to serve low-income students and young professionals in the affordable housing industry. LDG will contribute $1 million, over a 10-year period, to establish a new NAHRO/LDG Scholars initiative and to fund the NAHRO Merit College Scholarship, which provides grants to college students who live in HUD-assisted affordable housing.
Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, LDG has developed almost 10,000 units for families and seniors across eight states. The company was founded almost 25 years ago based on the belief that everyone deserves a quality place to live.
“At LDG, we have the honor of investing in and supporting thousands of families who call one of our developments home,” said Chris Dischinger, co-founder and principal of LDG Development. “The NAHRO/LDG Scholars program will allow our company to further invest in and support hard-working families and students who understand how a college education can help them achieve their long- and short-term goals.”
