News Clips

Richmond BizSense, Thursday, March 28, 2019
(RECAP: A multijurisdictional approval process has cleared the way for a conversion of a former nursing home on the Richmond-Henrico line into apartments aimed at alleviating homelessness. VSH is planning the apartments as low-income housing, meaning for residents earning 50 percent or less of the area median income, and as permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless adults. The $30 million project would involve low-income housing tax credits from the Virginia Housing Development Authority.)
Richmond Times-Dispatch, Monday, March 25, 2019
(RECAP: Cook’s Corner Partners LLC will invest $2 million to open the new commissary kitchen in the former Rappahannock Central Elementary School cafeteria. Plans call for constructing 24 units of affordable housing by 2020 to help attract and retain skilled workers. The state is providing $480,000 in Industrial Revitalization Fund awards administered by DHCD, and $215,000 through a Community Impact Grant from the Virginia Housing Development Authority. VHDA will also provide permanent loan financing for the affordable housing units, which totals approximately $2.2 million.)
The Virginia Gazette, Tuesday, March 12, 2019
(RECAP: Oakland Pointe, a proposed new apartment complex that’s poised to become one of Norge’s newest additions, is expected to start construction next spring, and its first residents are anticipated to move in the following year. Now it has another hurdle to clear — acquisition of the tax credits provided by the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program, which are needed to make the affordable housing project financially viable.)
FAUQUIER NOW, Tuesday, March 19, 2019
(RECAP: If all goes according to plan, Vint Hill could get a 125-unit, “affordable” senior citizens’ apartment complex in about 2-1/2 years. But that schedule depends on Good Works, Rockville, Md.-based REBJ and Bethesda-based Saint Mary’s Housing Development Corp. in June winning approval from the Virginia Housing Development Authority for $12 million in tax credits to help fund the affordable housing project.)
NBC29.COM, Tuesday, March 19, 2019
(RECAP: By 2040, thousands of people in central Virginia will face a housing crisis unless action is taken now. That's the news that came out of an affordable housing talk between statewide advocates and those on the local level on Tuesday, March 19. That report comes from the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission.)
