Ribbon Cutting in Sandwich for New Affordable Housing Project, Terrapin Ridge!

Terrapin Ridge is a newly constructed affordable rental housing project located off of Quaker Meeting Housing Road in Sandwich, MA.  Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) acquired the Terrapin Ridge just prior to completion, organized the lease-up effort, and now manages the project.  The project consists of thirty units housed in eight buildings located on 6 acres of land previously owned by the Sandwich Housing Authority.  All units are restricted affordable units with sixteen units affordable to families earning below 60% Area Median Income (AMI) and fourteen units affordable to families earning below 30% AMI.  Terrapin Ridge was awarded $250,000 from the Barnstable County HOME Consortium.  A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on November 18, 2021.  Barnstable County is proud to collaborate with our state and local municipal partners in providing funding to help develop much needed affordable rental housing in our Cape communities.
