With the help of many partners, CCEH has purchased this downtown Concord building which will house four people coming from homelessness starting in the Fall of 2020!
What will the Green Street Apartments be?
- Four one-bedroom apartments for people coming from homelessness.
- Professionally managed by Concord Housing and Redevelopment.
- On-going supportive services provided to tenants by CCEH’s Case Management team.
- Rental assistance ensures that tenants only have to pay 30% of their income on rent.
- Funding for this project is provided by NH Housing Finance Authority (a forgivable 0% interest loan) and generous donations to CCEH’s Safe Spaces II: The Next Step fundraising campaign.
CCEH’s Green Street Apartments are the Next Step towards our goal of safe, affordable, and stable housing for all! We couldn’t have done this without the support and generosity of all who have pledged to our Safe Spaces II fundraising campaign and the supporters who went above and beyond to make this dream a reality!
Thanks to so many who made this possible!
