County Awarded No Place like Home Funding for Brunswick Commons Housing Project

Old Tunnel Property Purchase NewsFlash

Nevada County received noticed on Monday that the California Department of Housing and Community Development will be allocating $1.61 million dollars in No Place Like Home (NPLH) grant funding for the Brunswick Commons housing project. The project will be located at 836 Old Tunnel Road in Grass Valley and is a collaboration between Regional Housing Authority, Hospitality House and the Nevada County Health and Human Services Agency. While these partners were primarily responsible for the successful NPLH funding application, the project team also included dedicated staff from the City of Grass Valley and the Nevada County Community Development Agency who greatly contributed to the key approvals required to submit a successful NPLH application by the January deadline.

Mike Dent, Director of Nevada County Housing and Community Services notes, "This was a momentous effort in collaboration from many county departments along with technical support from the City of Grass Valley and Hospitality House staff. Our community will greatly benefit from the additional housing stock once this project is completed."

NPLH funds will be leveraged with additional funding streams to secure further grant and tax-credit funding in the coming months in an effort to fully fund the 41-unit affordable housing project.

Regional Housing Authority Executive Director, Gustavo Becerra explains that a commitment of project-based vouchers from the Regional Housing Authority will also be important to leveraging the application for Low-Income Housing Tax Credits that will be submitted by June 30th. Becerra further states, "The application for Tax Credits is the final step needed to secure all financing and long-term operating support for this 41-unit housing project. If all things go right, we could be breaking ground on this project in the spring of 2020."

When completed, Brunswick Commons will provide 28-units of low-income housing (rent set at 30% of Nevada County's median income) and 12-units of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for chronically homeless individuals with severe mental illness who are receiving supportive services from the County's Department of Behavioral Health.
