The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina has qualified to receive $7.2 million dollars in tax credits. The money will be used to build 50 homes in the Tribe's Arrowpoint subdivision.
To qualify for leasing a home, a family must make at or below 60 percent of the national median income. The homes will be available for a fifteen-year lease and are single-family.
Construction is projected to start in late October, 2009, and will create about 75 new jobs.
