Dobbins Hill II will boast 4 units to be set aside for persons with disabilities, as part of an initiative by the General Assembly to create 400 independent living apartments for persons with disabilities, including mental illness, developmental disabilities and substance abuse disorders. The N.C. Housing Finance Agency develops the rental housing and the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services provides rent assistance to make the apartments affordable for people living on Supplemental Security Income, which is approximately $620 per month. The Agency financed 422 apartments in 33 counties in the first year of the initiative, surpassing the goal.
“Thanks to the leadership of Representative Insko, Speaker Hackney, and the rest of the Orange County delegation in the General Assembly, we have been able to fund projects of this caliber throughout our state,” said Bob Kucab, executive director of the N.C. Housing Finance Agency.
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency is a self-supporting public agency. It has financed 184,000 affordable homes and apartments in the last three decades, including nearly 74,000 homes for first-time home buyers. To learn more, go to www.nchfa.com or call 919-877-5700 or 800-393-0988.
