SELLERSVILLE, Pa. — Grace Inspired Ministries (GIM), along with development partner Leon N. Weiner & Associates Inc. (LNWA), has completed Sellersville Senior Residences, an affordable housing community in Sellersville, approximately 30 miles north of Philadelphia.
The community’s 50 apartments are reserved for residents over age 55 meeting income requirements, with eight also reserved for those with behavioral health needs. The residences were built to the energy efficiency standards utilizing the Department of Energy Zero Energy Ready program.
“Sellersville Senior Residences will bring much needed affordable and supportive housing to an area with a growing cost of living and a very limited supply of high-quality, cost-effective, rental housing for seniors,” says Dan McKee, president and CEO of Grace Inspired Ministries. He views this project as an extension of GIM’s nearby continuing care retirement communities, the Lutheran Community at Telford and The Community at Rockhill.
GIM and LNWA were awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) and financed the project in partnership with S&T Bank, the County of Bucks, the Redevelopment Authority for the County of Bucks, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh.
Harkins Builders Inc. managed construction of the project. In addition, the Bucks County Housing Authority and the County of Bucks Office of Housing and Community Development facilitated efforts to coordinate supportive services. Arbor Management, a division of LNWA, will operate the community.
