North Carolina Housing Coalition (NCHC)
The Housing Coalition is a private, nonprofit membership organization working for decent, safe, and affordable housing that promotes self-determination and stable communities for low- and moderate-income North Carolinians. Its mission is to lead a campaign for housing to ensure that working families, people in crisis, seniors, and persons with disabilities can live with dignity and opportunity. This mission is supported through three primary roles: the Coalition serves as a resource and referral network for individuals looking for housing assistance and to organizations looking for information; the Coalition serves as a clearinghouse for best practices, research and data on housing issues in North Carolina; and the Coalition leads a campaign to empower people through their advocacy to improve housing policy-making by increasing resources, program effectiveness and consumer protections.
North Carolina Housing Finance Agency (NCHFA)
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency’s mission is to create affordable housing opportunities for North Carolinians whose needs are not met by the market. A self-supporting public agency, the Agency provides financing through the sale of tax-exempt bonds and management of federal and state tax credit programs, the federal HOME Program, the state Housing Trust Fund, and other programs. The Agency offers low-cost mortgages for first-time buyers, finances the development of affordable apartments and homes, as well as special-needs housing, and finances rehab and emergency repairs of owner-occupied homes. Since its creation in 1973 by the General Assembly, the Agency has financed 196,000 affordable homes and apartments, totaling more than $12.3 billion. Click here to visit NCHFA’s website.
