AHP Success Stories
Citibank Breaks Ground on Housing Complex for Seniors
Construction is underway on a complex in Somerset, New Jersey, that will add 64 new apartments for seniors to the area. In December, Federal Home Loan Bank of New York Chairman Michael Horn and fellow Board member Rev. DeForest B. Soaries were on hand at the groundbreaking for Independence Crossing. The FHLBNY partnered with its member, Citibank, to award a $630,000 Affordable Housing Program grant to the Rockland Housing Action Coalition to help finance the construction of the new apartments. Of the 64 senior residence units, five supportive housing units will be reserved for special needs residents, with preference given to homeless or disabled veterans.
“As Board members of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, Dr. Soaries and I see firsthand how vital our local lenders and non-profits are to communities across New Jersey, each and every day,” Chairman Horn said at the event.
