North East, MD – Community leaders and residents celebrated the grand opening of Riverwoods at North East Apartments in Cecil County, capping the evening with a community barbecue. The 76-unit, garden-style community is on Riverwoods Rd. next to Route 40 and nearby North East Creek.
Riverwoods at North East Apartments serves a tremendous demand in Cecil County for affordable rental housing. DHCD helped fund the development through the agency’s Rental Housing Production Program and federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
“It took less than three months for all 76 units to fill up. This only shows that affordable rental housing is needed more than ever,” said Brein O’Toole, deputy director of DHCD’s multifamily unit. “Funding this development emphasizes our commitment to the well-being of Maryland’s hardworking citizens and to helping them find a balance between family life and work life.”
