The only properties that our agency owns are Project I, II, and III and they are all located in rural villages of Portage County. Project I units (Amherst, Junction City, and Rosholt) are for the elderly/disabled, Project II units (Almond, Amherst, and Milladore) are for the elderly/disabled but we currently have an age waiver for 50 years and older, Project III units (Amherst, Junction City, and Rosholt) are for families (we have a wheelchair accessible unit in Amherst), and the Housing Choice Voucher Program can be utilized in any area of Portage County or the United States (rules and restrictions apply).
