A JULY 18, 2015 GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY was held for Harvest Homes Apartments, a joint venture between People’s Community Development Association of Chicago, Inc. (PDAC) and NHPF. The event was hosted by PDAC and NHPF in partnership with the City of Chicago Department of Planning and Development, State of Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, J. P. Morgan Chase Bank, and the Chicago Community Loan Fund. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Reverend Michael Eaddy, PDAC, Alderman Jason Ervin, 28th Ward, and Richard Burns, President and CEO, The NHP Foundation and supporters and neighbors in the East Garfield Park community helped to break ground on this new $12 million multi-family housing development. It will be affordable for low and moderate income residents in the East Garfield Park community on Chicago’s West Side.
“Today’s groundbreaking is the result of this community’s vision and voice, and I am pleased that the City of Chicago could support this effort,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Harvest Homes builds upon our efforts to create and preserve 40,000 units of housing in Chicago. And it is an example of how Chicago’s families and neighborhoods can benefit from public and private partnership to forge new futures for the community.” Congressman Danny K. Davis (D-IL 7th District), representing the congressional district in which the Harvest Homes development project is located, participated in the groundbreaking and noted, “Access to quality, affordable housing is key to building strong communities.”
