Franklin Heights (Project Based Voucher Program)

Franklin Heights consists of 129 units with project-based voucher assistance.  Eligible families and individuals generally contribute 30% of their adjusted monthly income towards the rent.  Nonexempt residents are enrolled in a self-sufficiency program that provides support and resources towards education, work training, and related needs such as childcare and transportation.  Franklin Heights units include apartments, townhouses, and single family homes, ranging in size from one to five bedrooms.

Commerce Village

Constructed in 2015, Commerce Village has 30 one-bedroom apartments, designated as permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless and medically vulnerable individuals.  As a recipient of VHDA tax credits, Commerce Village is able to offer affordable rents, which are further subsidized by vouchers, half of which are designated for chronically homeless veterans.
