LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Affordable housing has come to Prospect, offering new opportunities to young families.

The Delphinium Apartments in Norton Commons is now accepting applications.

It offers 21 three-bedroom apartments with amenities like granite countertops, washers and dryers and a children's play area. 

It's one project of many in the works. The Kentucky Housing Corporation and Louisville Cares are working to build hundreds of affordable apartments in neighborhoods across the city. 

"This is a very special project," said Kentucky U.S. Representative John Yarmuth. "Not only does it respond to one of what is a very critical community need -- affordable housing -- it also puts it into a neighborhood that you don't usually find affordable housing."

The Delphinium is now accepting applications. Rent ranges from $650 to $850 a month.
