Exeter’s Three Meeting Place seeks to complete affordable housing project

EXETER — Avesta Housing recently applied for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to receive $500,000 in funding for the fourth phase of its affordable housing project at Meeting Place Drive off Epping Road. Felder Kuehl Properties, LLC also approached the town for the same grant to break ground at 85 Epping Road.

Avesta’s final installment at Three Meeting Place will provide 43 one-bedroom and two-bedroom units to families, completing the multi-building campus at Meeting Place Drive. The current campus consists of three buildings and 97 units.

A CDBG grant is a federal program run by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to develop viable communities by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and opportunities to expand economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
