Historically, as a HUD Sec. 202 community, Chimes Terrace in Johnstown, Ohio, had been utilized as a restricted residential facility. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded an Assisted Living Conversion Program (ALCP) grant that allowed National Church Residences to convert 24 of the 60 units into affordable licensed assisted-living units. It's the first building in the country to combine 9% low-income housing tax credits and ALCP funds.
Chimes Terrace has been completely renovated to improve the property and benefit the larger community. The building was renovated to be LEED Silver certified.
Chimes Terrace provides 24/7 nursing services, hot dining services, therapy services, life-enrichment activities, commercial laundry, and housekeeping services to its assisted-living residents. The building's infrastructure is also better for community-service companies to serve the Independent-living residents.
