The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency has approved $8.7 million in funding to expand opportunities for those with special housing needs. The funding will benefit a number of sites statewide. 

In Greensboro, 12 apartments will be rehabilitated to provide transitional housing for people experiencing homelessness, and those at risk of having no place to live. In a separate project, a new 16-unit apartment building in Oakwood Park will house low-income residents and people with disabilities.

Access to 100 beds will be provided for Winston-Salem participants in a residential substance abuse program.

The funding comes through the agency’s Supportive Housing Development Program, which finances emergency, transitional and permanent housing for residents with special needs who are below 50% of the area's median income. Those benefitting can include military veterans, people experiencing homelessness, children in or aging out of foster care, and survivors of domestic violence.
