The grand opening event will take place on Thursday, April 25 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m., with the program beginning at 5 p.m. Hillcrest Villas is located at 2672-2736 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, Calif., 91362.

U.S. Bank provided more than $24.3 million in financing to help Many Mansions develop the property, including $12.4 million in financing from its Community Lending Division, more than $11.4 million of Low-Income Housing Tax Credit equity through U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation, the community investment arm of U.S. Bank, and an Affordable Housing Program grant for the benefit of the project.

“We are proud to partner with Many Mansions to provide quality affordable housing and services for those in our community who are most in need, including individuals and families who live on extremely fixed incomes, who are living with a disability, and who are homeless or at risk of being homeless,” said Sebastian Glowacki, vice president for U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation. “We applaud Many Mansions' mission-driven business model and their dedication to serving those in our community who are most vulnerable. Quality housing coupled with enhanced programming makes Hillcrest Villas an ideal place to call home.”

Designed in an Italian villa style, Hillcrest Villas is set out in five residential buildings with a separate community building, where Many Mansions will offer complimentary residential service programs for those interested, including its Homework Tutoring Club, Camp Many Mansions, and a variety of adult services.

The City of Thousand Oaks, the County of Ventura, California Housing Finance Agency, and the State of California also provided funding, including HOME funds and an allocation of tax credits, which generated the capital needed to subsidize the development, allowing units to rent at below-market rates. The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) program, which also raised funds, is subsidizing rent and expenses so that people diagnosed with a mental disability are able to live, work, learn and participate fully in their communities.

“We are very proud and honored to be supported by U.S. Bank and its affiliates in this project,” said Rick Schroeder, president of Many Mansions. “Hillcrest Villas will serve those in our community most in need of safe, decent, and affordable housing. We can only address this need with strong community partners, such as U.S. Bank. We look forward to continuing to work with U.S. Bank – not just at Hillcrest Villas – but in other affordable housing projects throughout Southern California.”

U.S. Bank has been active in supporting affordable housing in southern California. In October 2012, U.S. Bank received the Financial Supporter of the Year award at the Southern California Association of Non-Profit Housing (SCANPH) conference in Los Angeles, one of the largest affordable housing conferences in the country.

U.S. Bank was honored for its support of organizations that encourage the purchase, preservation, rehabilitation, and construction of affordable housing through direct lending, tax credit investments, partnership with investment lending programs, grants or volunteer support of affordable housing nonprofits in Southern California.
