Palmer Pointe Townhomes Success
Community Housing Network (CHN) and the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) recently hosted Scott Woolsey, the executive director of MSHDA, at our newly constructed Palmer Pointe Townhomes in Pontiac. This was part of a celebration recognizing the hard work and collaborative efforts to construct 24 new rental townhomes that promote community engagement, with nine of the 24 units designated for residents with special needs. These special needs units have provided households experiencing homelessness and/or disability an opportunity to access a new home in their community. This project came together with funding from Housing Tax Credits and MSHDA vouchers to make this dream possible for these families.
