city lynchburg logoThe deadline looms for the remaining residents of the Virginian apartments in Lynchburg. The section 8 housing for low-income housing complex on Church Street will close its doors Aug. 31 – In June an announcement was made that the 100-unit complex was closing. About 80 residents had two months to relocate. Most residents have found new homes, but a few still remain; as the city lacks more affordable housing options. Officials have been reaching out landlords in Lynchburg and surrounding areas and publicly requested more consider providing Section 8 housing vouchers.
