A neighborhood for working families along with apartments for seniors, formerly homeless individuals and adults with developmental disabilities were honored today with Housing North Carolina Awards for excellence in affordable housing. Located in Charlotte, East Flat Rock, Greensboro and Greenville, these developments were the latest in the awards’ 28-year history to be recognized.
