The newly RE-IMAGINED Shalom Square

In 2016, plans were started to substantially rehabilitate this property through the State of Maryland Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program.  The LIHTC program is actually a program of the IRS. HHP was awarded their first ever Tax Credit project in December of 2017 for this work. The project was financed with the State 4% LIHTC and bond financing, an Energy Grant from the State, CDBG funds from the County as well as a PILOT from the County. HHP worked with Chesapeake Community Advisers,  Southway Builders, Wiencek and Associates Architects. Our legal team was Carney, Kelehan Bressler, Bennett, and Scherr. Our tax credit partner is Cinnaire. The property also retained the HUD Section 202/8 project-based voucher. Work on the project was completed as of December 31, 2018. Some of the changes in the units include all new appliances, cabinets, countertops, flooring, windows, painting, tile, and lighting, and plumbing fixtures. Washers and dryers were also added to each unit. The exterior of the buildings were redone with new hardy plank siding and all building received new roofs. New sidewalks and landscaping was also completed. The Community Building was also completely redone and now includes fully accessible bathrooms, a kitchen, a meeting room a library and a management office. There are five fully accessible units: 3 one bedroom units and 2 efficiency units and there are two units for the site and hearing impaired.
