Release Date: Dec 23, 2015

Three supportive housing projects that will provide permanent housing for chronically homeless veterans or persons who are homeless will share $1.25 million in development funding from MaineHousing.

The three projects in Milbridge, Augusta, and Portland were selected in a competitive process. The projects are:

  • Washington-Hancock Community Agency (WHCA): 2 Maple Street, Milbridge; two 1-bedroom units that will be used for permanent housing for chronically homeless veterans; new construction; up to $250,000.
  • Community Housing of Maine (CHOM): 1 Noyes Court, Augusta; four 1-bedroom units that will be used for permanent housing for persons that are homeless, primarily “long-term stayers” at shelters as defined by the Maine Statewide Homeless Council; renovation of existing property to be acquired by CHOM; up to $500,000.
  • Community Housing of Maine (CHOM): 106 Cumberland Avenue, Portland; four 1-bedroom units that will be used for permanent housing for persons that are homeless, primarily “long-term stayers” at shelters as defined by the Maine Statewide Homeless Council; renovation of existing property to be acquired by CHOM; up to $500,000.

“MaineHousing is committed to ending chronic homelessness in Maine, especially among our veterans,” said Director John Gallagher. “This financing helps ten individuals have a home of their own in their communities, including Washington County, plus receive the supportive services they need from our partners.”

The funding is contingent on project objectives such as design approval, satisfaction of the local approval process being met.
