The Canaan House Project consists of the acquisition and rehabilitation of a twenty (20) story building located in Manhattan, New York City. One hundred ten (110) of the revenue generating units has been set aside for households whose incomes are at or below 60% of AMI. The remaining revenue generating units are market rate units that are subject to HUD Section 236 guidelines.
Hope Community, which runs the 147-unit Mitchell-Lama building, worked with Carthage Real Estate Advisors to refinance the W. 118th St. complex. Funding sources include financing from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Rental Assistance Demonstration program along with tax-exempt bonds and low-income housing tax credits. Through the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program administered by HUD and 4% bonds, the building was able to have major capital repairs done and provide a rental subsidy for eligible tenants at the building.
