NDC CEF is excited to announce the closing of The Reserve at Mount Gilead, located in Mt. Gilead, Ohio. The project is the new construction of a senior (55+) rental project that consists of forty-seven (47) units in one building. All units will be rented to senior households whose incomes do not exceed 30% – 60% of the area median income. The project will include community amenities such as on-site management, elevator, activity room, laundry facilities, picnic area, surface parking, and controlled building access and surveillance system. Additionally, United Church Homes will provide services that include financial assistance, health & medical assistance, transportation coordination, as well as connections to other resources and information based on resident needs.
