GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro City Council unanimously approved the budget ordinance worth more than $1.4 million for the Nussbaum Housing Partnership Tuesday.
Affordable housing programs, made possible from the Nussbaum Housing Partnership funding, have been available for Greensboro residents since 1989.
This year the Neighborhood Development Department requested 1,448,228.
The funds will support programs to rehabilitate and construct 150 new affordable housing units, house repairs for eligible homes facing demolition and multifamily housing development for East Greensboro and the Ole Asheboro area.
This year, Barbara Harris with Neighborhood Development said the funding will also go toward educational programs for the public on rental ownership, tenant safety and heating systems repairs or replacements.
“This could mean a huge difference in the quality of life for someone living in a home of what we might consider basic repairs but what that family might not be able to afford,” Harris said.
