SPRING CITY—The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) recently honored the Housing Authority of the County of Chester (HACC) and Mission First Housing Group with the prestigious 2018 Award of Excellence in Design for the Whitehall Apartments.

Mission First Housing Group renovated the historic Whitehall Inn and constructed a new addition to create 48 permanent supportive housing apartments for veterans in need — the Whitehall Apartments. Mission First developed The Whitehall in response to a local need for housing for at-risk veterans and a national effort to end veteran’s homelessness. The key project building block was a 15-year voucher contract from the Housing Authority of the County of Chester, which translates into $5 million in housing assistance. The Whitehall was built using Passive House design standards for energy efficiency, which will reduce utility usage by 80 percent over standard construction.
