SNHS receives HUD approval for Manchester, Lancaster senior housing
SNHS received great news recently when word came from Washington, DC that applications to build the final 16 apartments at Hallsville Court in Manchester (Phase 3 of three phases) and 20 much-needed apartments on Route 2 in Lancaster had been approved.
The New Hampshire Union Leader and Coos County Democrat reported on the successful applications and SNHS representatives are scheduled to go before the Lancaster Planning Board on December 14. Due to competition for metro units throughout New England, SNHS’ request for funding to build in Londonderry was not approved at this time.
According to the Union Leader article, the “grants are targeted to help non-profit organizations produce accessible housing, offer rental assistance and facilitate supportive services for the elderly.”
SNHS is doing its part to stimulate the in-state construction industry with groundbreaking scheduled in the coming days for 16 units of senior housing on Fairgrounds Road in Plymouth and 16 units on Alpine Village Drive in North Woodstock. Local officials in both Grafton County communities have been supportive of SNHS’ housing mission and have reported unofficially that there’s already great interest among town residents.
Completion and occupancy for both of these residences is expected in Summer/Fall 2012.
