The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency is moving forward with a $200 million project to revitalize and develop parts of three districts in north Sacramento.

The agency will use a portion of a $30 million federal grant to bring services, jobs and mass transit to the Twin Rivers area of north Sacramento, while building public housing in the Railyards and River District.

Tyrone Roderick Williams is the SHRA development director.

"We're working with our friends and partners at Township 9 and with the Railyards to look at how do we connect all of the parts of the River District and the Railyards to this community."
 
Willams says the Housing and Urban Development grant will be used to add at least 400 new residential units in areas that are without housing.

HUD representatives will be in Sacramento in December to help plan the project.  

As a condition of the grant, SHRA must begin construction by March of 2017.
