Committed to addressing the housing needs of homeless veterans in Wisconsin, Cardinal Capital and Center for Veterans Issues (CVI) partnered to open a second permanent, supportive veterans housing project in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Located on Green Bay's northeast side, the project offers 50 one-bedroom apartments to low-income veterans. The buildings amenities include a community room with a full kitchen, fitness center, and a computer lab. Internet and all utilities are included in the monthly rent.
On-site supportive services are provided by CVI and there is an on-site management office. Major General Jacob Brown Veterans Manor has a bus stop at the site and is located just a few blocks away from the VA Clinic.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
