Cleveland-based developer NRP Group is looking to get about $250,000 from the city of Kent towards construction of a new senior housing development off Sunnybrook Road.
Kent City Council voted in committee this month to make $250,000 of Kent's allocation of Community Housing Improvement Program money, a federal housing program, available for the project.
Council will cast a final vote on the issue later this month.
The CHIP money will support Maple Brook at Four Seasons, a senior housing complex that will include up to 68 apartment units targeted at low-income seniors age 55 and older.
The overall estimated cost of the project, which will share some facilities with neighoring KentRidge at Golden Pond, is $11.3 million.
Council originally voted in November 2011 to use CHIP money to support the project, which has already gained approval from the city's planning commission and architectural review board.
The project is expected to be under construction by the end of the year.
