Mather Veterans Village
The City of Rancho Cordova is working with Mercy Housing, the Veterans Resource Center of America, and Mogavero Notestine Associates to plan and design Mather Veterans’ Village, a transitional and permanent supportive housing development that will serve disabled homeless veterans. Located in close proximity to the Sacramento VA Medical Center, Mather Veterans Village will help fulfill the large need for service-supported housing for low-income disabled veterans in the Northern California region. The project is co-sponsored by the City of Rancho Cordova, Sacramento County, and the Sacramento VA Medical Center. The multiple-phase project will include at least 100 units of permanent supportive housing and up to 60 transitional beds.
Mather Veterans Village is intended to provide a service-rich living environment, and will be designed to promote a community feel for veterans. Features will include a group dining area, courtyards, and classrooms. Existing grant funding comes from the California Department of Housing and Community Development’s Local Housing Trust Fund Program, with matching monies from the City. The City and developer are also pursuing tax credit funding through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program, managed by the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee. Tax credits are tax deductions that large firms can purchase to reduce their tax burden. The money generated from the purchase can be used for a range of non-profit activities, including affordable housing developments.
The project’s first phase will include 50 permanent supportive housing units and rehabilitation of a vacant infirmary building located on the 3.64 acre site. The rehabilitated two – story infirmary building will provide space for the transitional housing.
