Benches on North Tryon are part of the homeless population's turf due to the lack of affordable housing.

A trio of proposals to use Mecklenburg County’s $11 million allocation for rental subsidies would target those most in need of housing, including people who are very low-income, elderly, chronically homeless or experiencing domestic violence.

Commissioner Susan Harden said the proposals mirrored the board’s earlier conversations about priorities around affordable housing and the county’s most vulnerable residents.

“I’m seeing populations in here we talked about: the moms that need a little extra (help), the veterans, the seniors, domestic violence (victims),” she said. “I’m very moved by the thoughtful nature that is being presented to us.”
