Affordable Housing Funds Coming

U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine have announced more than $43 million in federal funding is being earmarked for 26 municipalities in Virginia, including Charlottesville, to develop, finance and modernize public housing developments.

“All Virginians deserve access to safe and affordable housing,” said the senators. “We are pleased that this federal funding will help make a difference in communities across Virginia.”

The Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority is expected to receive nearly $875,000. Other localities getting funding include Abingdon, Bristol, Coeburn, Danville, Franklin, Hampton, Jonesville, Lynchburg, Marion, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Richmond, Suffolk, Waynesboro, and Williamsburg among others.

The money is being awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Public Housing Capital Fund.
