Does this program focus on other areas in addition to the development of affordable housing?

Yes, in addition to supporting the development of affordable housing units, the City also plays an important role in providing services to low-income residents. The City of Durham serves as the coordinator for Durham’s homelessness system and provides funding for a range of emergency shelter and homeless housing programs. In addition, the City works with community-based partners to offer repair and rehabilitation programs for low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners, down payment assistance for income-qualified homebuyers, and legal assistance for low-income renters facing evictions. These outcomes are tracked in the homeless assistance, home ownership, and neighborhood stabilization categories, and will also contribute to economic development.
