(Provo-AP) -- A former elementary school in Provo is being turned into low-income housing.

With the help of a grant, the vacant Maeser Elementary School will become housing for 32 people.

The project is expected to cost about four (M)million dollars.

Four groups in town secured about 525-thousand dollars for that project and a handful of others designed to create affordable housing.

The Provo Housing Authority bought the Maeser school early last month for 750-thousand dollars.

The building has been vacant since 2002.
