WHY: According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Median Family Income and American Community Survey data, there are nearly 9,000 veterans who are very low-income and more than 1,000 are at risk for homelessness in the Charlotte area. The goal of Tyvola Crossing Phase II is to provide affordable homes for our community’s veterans and their families, and formerly homeless families and individuals, with incomes ranging from 30-50 percent of Area Median Income.
