Abstract:
Durham will evict approximately 200 low-income residents from their Lincoln Apartment homes. The property owner can no longer afford the utilities and upkeep. None of the city’s recent initiatives will immediately help them. The city has a waiting list for affordable housing, Section 8 housing is closed, and funding is scarce. The budget includes plans for expanding affordable housing over the next five years, but it won’t help those Lincoln Apartment residents now.
