Award for Mission Village of Evans in Evans, CO

Category: Development

Mission Village of Evans will consist of 68 units of new construction housing in Evans, CO.  The layout will include a mix townhouse and cottage style units. The target population is families/workforce housing.  This project will be developed in coordination with the Greeley Area Habitat for Humanity who is planning to develop a 25-unit homeownership community adjacent to our project site.  Evans neighbors the town of Greeley, where Daryn Murphy, VP of Development – Northwest Region, developed Commonwealth’s first Colorado project.  There is a very strong need for workforce housing throughout Colorado, and the Greeley project maintains a long wait list.  This project will be a win-win for the community and Commonwealth.

Financing for the project will use 9% (competitive) housing tax credits and a $3,000,000 award of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
