Garwood's Low Income Senior Housing Project Gets Boost

Boost for Low Income Housing
There was a major development in the progress of the Garwood senior housing project slated for the former St. Anne's School. The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York awarded a $1 million grant to the Westfield Senior Citizens Housing Corp. to help finance the Village at Garwood project,  according to a report on nj.com. The plan for the site includes 71 units of affordable housing for very low-income seniors, the report says. The building will include on-site parking, on-site laundry facilities, a community room and resident storage units. 

The rest of the funding for the project will be provided by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development 202 program, Low Income Housing Tax Credits, a New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency construction loan and the Westfield Senior Citizens Housing Corp, reports say.

At a council meeting this year Mayor Quattrocchi said Garwood seniors who are interested in living at the new complex should contact the Senior Citizen Housing Corporation.

The senior housing project was approved back in 2010.
