Onslow Commissioners approve affordable housing project in Jacksonville

The Onslow County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Monday to support an affordable housing project which proposed up to 180 new units in Jacksonville.  Commissioners decided to allocate up to $5 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding for the project.  Seven proposals were submitted and ultimately Carolina Statewide Development LLC was awarded the funding to build an 82-unit development in Jacksonville Commons with the potential to increase the number of units to 180.  According to a news release, there is an estimated 2,100-unit deficit in affordable housing in Onslow County.
