RIBBON CUTTING: AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT FOR THOSE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

The area’s first affordable supportive housing building will soon open in West Cape May. A ribbon cutting is scheduled for Wednesday at 11 a.m. The project is a result of a visionary, collaborative effort between local government, a supportive services organization and an affordable housing developer. Newly constructed on land donated by the Borough of West Cape May, Cape Manor will offer affordable permanent housing to individuals with mental and developmental disabilities – specifically young adults with autism spectrum disorders.
 
Cape Manor Supportive Housing is made possible through a partnership with the Borough of West Cape May, Collaborative Support Programs of New Jersey, Inc. (CSP-NJ), and Community Investment Strategies, Inc. (CIS). Kitchen & Associates were design architects for Cape Manor. The building will be managed and operated by CSP-NJ, a nationally recognized innovative mental health service organization.
 
Funding for the project is provided by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Special Needs Trust Fund, The Reinvestment Fund’s PLAN Program, the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Small Cities Program, State Rental Assistance Program, State Division of Mental Health Services and the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York’s Affordable Housing Program.
 
The ribbon cutting ceremony will feature Pamela Kaithern, Mayor, Borough of West Cape May; Victor Luna, Chief Financial Officer, CSP-NJ; Anthony Marchetta, Executive Director of the Housing Mortgage Finance Agency; Lopa P. Kolluri, Vice President, Community Investment Strategies and representatives from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
