The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors is set to vote tonight on whether or not to award more than a million dollars in additional funds to build housing for veterans in Windsor. The Windsor Veterans Village would be made up of 60 multi-family rental units and has already received $32 million in permanent financing, in addition to a $22 million bond allocation for its construction and another $750,000 from the county. The Sonoma County Community Development Commission says more money is needed due to construction cost increases that are above normal in California, due in part to the 2017 wildfires.

If the facility doesn’t receive additional funding, it could lose $12 million in federal low income housing tax credits and nearly $10 million in state Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Program money.
