Humanity have been working in partnership with the Virginia Department of
Housing and Community Development since the mid-1990ís to develop
affordable housing at Botha. The
County has received a planning grant and a grant for the construction of
infrastructure for a 17-lot subdivision.
Both non-profit organizations have received grants and donations to
support the construction of single-family homes.
The agencies have been working with many low-to- moderate income
families who are seeking improved housing.
Applicants for the housing must be current residents, have a family
history of residing in the County or be employed by a public or community
service agency. The selected
families must have the financial ability to pay a reduced mortgage and the
ability to maintain the property.
Bids were solicited for the infrastructure of the subdivision, which
includes construction of a road to VDOT standards, construction of septic
systems and a water system to the Virginia Health Department standards,
and the installation of storm water management facilities to meet County
land development requirements. Five
bids were received and negotiations conducted with the low bidder to award
a contract consistent with the availability of grant funds.

adoption of the attached resolution.
Financial Impacts Analysis
