OBOKEN, NJ — American Legion Veterans Affordable

Housing , which will provide affordable supportive homes for six homeless veterans and was funded in part by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA) , celebrated its opening with a ribbon cutting joined by NJHFMA execu- tive staff, US Senator Robert Menendez, local officials and the developer, American Le- gion Hoboken Post No. 107. The project on Second Street involved the demolition of American Legion Post No. 107 and construction of a five-story building, which provides three efficiency and three one-bed- room apartments. The second floor, financed separately, is housing the new American Legion Hall. Residents are expected to start moving into the apartments this month. “Governor Murphy and I are dedicated to taking care of our military veterans in New Jersey. When our state was hit by Superstorm Sandy, it left some of our most vulnerable residents, including veterans of limited financial means, in an even more precarious situation. This prompted the State of New Jersey to work with housing developers such as Monarch to create perma- nent, affordable housing for people with special needs in communities impacted by the storm,” said Lt.

To date, the program has funded 48 projects providing 401 beds for special needs residents. DCA’s Division of Housing and Com- munity Resources awarded the project six project-based housing vouchers for military veterans, and the project also includes $855,000 in Hudson County Home Funds toward the construction of the overall building. “NJHMFA is proud to be included in this development partnership, which represents a deep commitment to help- American Legion VeteransAfford- able Housing industry relationships and wealth of affordable housing knowledge will be instrumental as we continue to expand our platform.” Wittkopf brings 14 years of multifamily affordable housing experience to the CDLI team.
