ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Englewood Cliffs based Procida Funding announced that its 100 Mile Fund provided a $7 million loan for the property acquisition and road construction for 200 townhomes in Toms River, New Jersey. 

The townhomes will be built by Ryan Homes, a publically traded homebuilder ranked #2 in the United States.  Ryan will develop 200 three-bedroom, two and half bathroom homes on the 26 acre property located on Lakewood Drive and Cox Crow Road in Toms River. 

This is the first large housing project to be financed in the aftermath that Sandy left behind in this beach community.   FEMA reported that roughly 7,600 homes and businesses in Toms River were damaged from the storm.  "This development comes at a time when housing is needed most in this area," said Billy Procida, Principal of Procida Funding & Advisors.  "When we fund projects we always create jobs and improve neighborhoods but in this case it's truly rewarding to be part of the Toms River's rebirth."
