Affordable housing is a pressing issue in the Charlottesville/Albemarle area, and UVA is committed to working alongside community partners. The University has established a goal to support the development of 1,000 to 1,500 affordable housing units in Charlottesville and Albemarle County over the next decade using land owned by UVA and/or the UVA Foundation.
Please join UVA President Jim Ryan and Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer J.J. Davis for a public kickoff of the University’s Affordable Housing initiative. Frequently asked questions will be addressed during the session. Project consultant Gina Merritt of Northern Real Estate Urban Ventures, LLC (NREUV) will provide background, examples of past projects, and share an overview of the community engagement process.
