PLAN STATUS/RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANTICIPATED EXIT DATE

Acquisition is approximately 83% complete at this point. Identified site improvements are approximately 65% complete. Based upon current cost estimates, and assuming funding remains at current levels, it is estimated that it will be another 7 years before planned activities identified in the conservation plan will be completed. This also assumes no further amendments to the plan occur. Should additional amendments occur, the anticipated completion date would have to be extended or current funding levels would have to be increased. If funding were increased with no additional changes to the plan, the projected completion date could be accelerated.

 

Lamberts Point Senior Apartments

NRHA partnered with the Retirement Housing Foundation of Long Beach, CA to develop a 40-unit senior apartment complex expected to open fall 2010. The complex is adjacent to the Village Pointe apartments in Lamberts Point developed by RHF and NRHA in 2003. The units will be available to families where the head or co-head of household is 62 or older and makes 50% or less of Area Median Income (AMI). Total development costs of $4.3 million are being offset by a $4 million HUD Section 202 grant, which NRHA assisted RHF in securing.
