$600K given for Nicky Hayden apartments

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - A new apartment complex in memory of Nicky Hayden for people in need will now become a reality.

The apartments will be right across the street from the Daniel Pitino shelter to provide 12 homes for women and children who need it.

The Pitino Shelter was awarded a $600,000 affordable housing program grant this week.

The executive director of the shelter said that money will help with the construction costs.

Officials say they've had a great need for housing like this in Owensboro.

Groundbreaking is expected to happen in the spring, and the shelter hopes to have the apartments open by Thanksgiving 2019.
