AMCAL Starts Construction of 61-Unit Affordable Housing Community for Veterans in Pomona, California


Veterans Park Apartments in Pomona, Calif., will feature 61 apartments and a variety of on-site services and programming for veterans.

POMONA, CALIF. — AMCAL Multi-Housing has started construction of Veterans Park Apartments, an affordable apartment community for veterans.

Located at 444 W. Commercial St. in Pomona, Veterans Park Apartments will feature 61 units ranging in size from 600 square feet to 1,000 square feet. The project will offer 25 one-bedroom/one-bath apartments, 15 two-bedroom/two-bath units and 20 three-bedroom/two-bath apartments. Additionally, one apartment will be reserved as an unrestricted manager’s unit.

Designed by WHA, the architectural design will draw from the surrounding mission architecture and nearby historic Pomona train depot. On-site amenities will include a 1,725-square-foot children’s center offering tutoring, mentoring, homework help, art, educational games, after-school programs and recreational activities for residents.

The project will also offer on-site social services for residents, including programs on transitioning to civilian life and how to navigate the Veterans Affairs system, delivered in the community’s 1,052-square-foot Veterans Center. Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.-based Hope Through Housing Foundation will serve as the on-site coordinator.

The development was awarded $1.8 million in annual federal tax credits by the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee. Rents will range from $545 a month for a one-bedroom unit to $1,519 for a three-bedroom apartment, offering affordable housing options to households earning between 30 percent and 60 percent of area median income. The community will welcome veterans with Housing Choice Vouchers issued from the HUD Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program.
