Housing Matters: We Need Your Help

Satana Deberry, Executive Director

2017 is coming to a close. This year has been both productive and challenging for housing affordability and community development in NC. At the local level, we have seen our influence grow as local elected leaders and stakeholders focus on the supply of affordable housing in their communities. At the state level, we have seen resources hold steady in an environment that is increasingly threatening to resources for low to moderate income households. And at the federal level, we have seen resources diminished directly and more threatened in the future.

North Carolina could lose at least $700 million in funding that helps develop rental property and provide support for homeownership.

This week’s introduction letter is going to be short – we need your help. Federal tax changes are directly threatening the ability of developers and local governments to insure that every North Carolinian has as safe, decent, affordable place to live. North Carolina could lose at least $700 million in funding that helps develop rental property and provide support for homeownership. We need you to reach out to NC’s congressional delegation to voice objections. Jump to Samuel’s update to learn how to do this and what to say.

However, just as importantly, the Coalition privately raises all our funding every year to protect housing affordability in North Carolina. We need your help financially to continue our work. Please join the Coalition before year’s end. Also, consider making an additional donation to the Coalition to support our work. In addition to threatening key affordable housing resources, the tax plan may make this the last year that your membership and donation could be tax deductible. Make your voice heard and your donation count!

Happy holidays!
