Archbishop Iakovos Senior Residence

Representing HANAC’s first new housing initiative, The Archbishop Iakovos Senior Residence in Astoria, Queens, is a permanent rental building for low to moderate-income seniors. Funding for the initial construction of this project was provided by a HUD Section 202 grant in 1991. The project contains 100 apartments and includes amenities such as a laundry room, parking lot, garden and recreation community space.

As a result of the “Affordable Housing for Seniors and Families Act 2000, HUD 202,” buildings with HUD loans are now eligible to prepay the loans and to refinance that existing debt with financing more advantageous to the project. HANAC recently took advantage of this opportunity in 2011, and refinanced the property utilizing bond financing and low-income tax credits made available through the New York State New Bond Issue Program by the NYS Division of Homes & Community Renewal. Proceeds from the refinancing were used in 2012 to renovate the property’s interior and exterior and improve the building’s energy efficiency by 20 percent.

To further assist the residents, HANAC operates an on-site senior center that offers meals, social services, recreational programs and transportation services that are also available to the residents of the nearby community. HUD also funds an on-site Service Coordinator who supports the needs of residents by coordinating their social service needs and providing them with information and referral services as needed.
