Peter Kelleher, President and CEO of Harbor Homes, Inc. was joined by Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas, Alderman William Shea, Dean Christon of New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority and representatives of various organizations to officially break ground on the Somerville Street Veterans FIRST Housing Project on Tuesday afternoon.

The Somerville Street Veterans FIRST Housing Project consists of the new construction of a three-story building with 26 apartments with an elevator located south of Gill Stadium in Manchester. Sponsored by Harbor Homes, Inc. of Nashua, which currently has a waiting list for veterans’ housing, the Somerville Street Veterans FIRST Housing Project will provide housing and supportive services for homeless, honorably-discharged veterans and their families.

Construction on the Somerville Street Veterans FIRST Housing Project is expected to begin the week of June 18 with an estimated completion date of April 2013.
In addition to federal HOME funds being committed to the project by New Hampshire Housing through its Special Needs Housing Program, the project is receiving funding from the Department of Veteran Affairs, the City of Manchester (through the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program), Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Home Loan Bank – Boston and Merrimack County Savings Bank.
