RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Builders have broken ground on the final phase of a Raleigh apartment complex that will provide shelter to homeless veterans.

WRAL-TV reported (https://bit.ly/1mfGIxR) that officials with the nonprofit that’s building and managing the apartments say this second and final phase will provide another 10 permanent, affordable homes for veterans.

Last year, 10 former U.S. service members moved into one-bedroom apartments at Sunnybrook Apartments for Veterans. Residents pay 30 percent of their monthly income toward rent.

The city of Raleigh, Wake County and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development pay for construction, and the nonprofit CASA maintains the housing through donations.
