Paseo Verde, Philadelphia, PA

CSH made a $7 million New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) investment in Paseo Verde. With this investment, Paseo Verde was able to leverage an additional $41 million in funding to finance this $48 million development. CSH will also work with APM to ensure supportive housing tenants have access to sufficient wrap around services. Key concepts in providing quality supportive housing in an integrated housing setting are ensuring intensive service provision as tenants stabilize, coordinating between multiple service providers and establishing good communications between service providers and property managers.
