Charlotteville Affordable Housing for Seniors Now Taking Applications
To be eligible, income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income. The former farmhouse located in historical downtown Charlottesville has been totally remodeled to provide 26 units for senior citizens. The downtown location is ideal for senior citizens because it is close to many facilities. In addition, the units are all on the ground floor for easy access, with some units designed for people with disabilities.
Development for the project came from the Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA), with funding from The City of Charlottesville, low-income housing tax credits, federal grants, and donations from the community as well as private donations. The units are expected to go quickly in this area where this is a large demand for affordable housing.
JABA assists communities with better living solutions that provide safe and healthy independent living options for aging adults. Their goal is to help aging adults remain in the community with housing that is affordable and accessible.
