Celebrating Construction of 120 New Homes And Community Redevelopment
A ribbon cutting ceremony for Kilmer Homes I & II will take place on Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.
Kilmer Homes I & II is located at 115 and 117 Truman Drive in Edison.
The ribbon cutting celebrates the grand opening of 120 newly constructed affordable apartments, apartments for homeless families, and the redevelopment of the former U.S. Army Camp Kilmer, which officially closed in 2009.
Kilmer Homes was funded in part through the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Despite continued pressure to reduce its federal funding, the forty-two-year-old CDBG program continues to positively impact communities and their citizens. The ribbon cutting coincides with National Community Development Week. Kilmer Homes exemplifies how federal funding, specifically CDBG funding, can effectively create affordable housing.
