Bay Minette native Donna Godwin was in need of affordable housing after moving back to the area to care for elderly parents. After seeing a sign for Cypress Trace in the early days of its construction, Godwin added her name to the waiting list. Her patience paid off. The retired nurse and her service dog, Pearl, became Cypress Trace's first residents.
Cypress Trace was financed in part by $1,531,420 in HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds and $481,325 in Housing Credits, both administered in Alabama by AHFA.
