Dozens of low-income families in Lynchburg are looking for a place to live, now that one of the city's largest affordable housing facilities is closing.
The Virginian is shutting down at the end of August. Owners of the apartment building say it's not generating enough money to stay in business.
The property has 100 units and is currently 80% occupied.
Lynchburg's Redevelopment and Housing Authority is trying to get federal vouchers that would help tenants pay for apartments elsewhere.
"With the voucher, if they want to go someplace else, they are not tied to Lynchburg," said Dawn Fagan, executive director of the housing authority. "I am hoping that will give some an opportunity that they didn't otherwise have."
The housing authority plans to meet with tenants of The Virginian tomorrow to discuss options and help them find a new home.
