Charlotte, North Carolina’s Affordable Housing Success Story – xChats October 2019

In 2019, leaders in Charlotte, NC raised $100 million in capital for affordable housing projects. That included $50 million in housing bonds, approved by 69% of voters in Charlotte, and $50 million from private sector sources. This was an incredible achievement, one that organizations in Virginia took serious note of. What lessons can we learn from them to push us towards similar success?
