Community Access Project Loan

On April 11, 2014, the Fund closed on a $3.87 million loan to Community Access, Inc. for the acquisition of a partially-vacant site located at 111 East 172nd Street in the Grand Concourse neighborhood of the Bronx.  The site will be developed into a 132-unit multifamily rental building with 72 supportive housing units targeted to individuals and families with a disabling mental health and/or addiction issue. The remaining 60 units will be affordable units for low-income households.  For more information on the Project please visit the Fund's summary.
