We had a chance to talk with Hull City Administrator Aaron Kooiker, who tells us about the situation.
Kooiker says they started researching what could be done.
He says the process works on a number of grants.
Kooiker tells us what they have planned.
He says he and the Hull City Council are behind the project.
Kooiker says they submit the grant application in December and should hear back by March. They hope to start building the Hull duplexes in June or July of 2015, and they hope to have them built about nine months later, some time in 2016.
