August 5, 2015 – NDC will join project partners, investors and supporters at the Grand Opening of Sunny View Village on Whidbey Island. The Event will take place today at 11am at 1667 Scenic Avenue in Freeland, Washington and is sponsored by the Housing Authority of Island County.
Sunny View Village is a newly constructed project that consists of one, two and three bedroom apartments and addresses the demand for affordable family housing on Whidbey Island. Seven units will have Project Based Section 8 rental vouchers and will be set aside for homeless families, the remaining units are set aside for those earning 50% of AMI and 60% of AMI.
The seven units set aside for homeless families are considered transitional housing and are supported by the non-profit Opportunity Council, to provide referrals, case management and other services at no cost to the project. These services will continue until residents either no longer need them or the family are ready to transition into a self-support program.
NDC CEF partnered with Common Ground and the Housing Authority of Island County, using a combination of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Tax-Exempt Bond Financing, Island County HOME Funds, and Island County 2063 Funds to help finance and develop the $6.3 Million project.
We are proud to be a part of Sunny View Village and would like to congratulate our partners and investors on this impactful project!
