On October 26th, I presented to the North Carolina Housing Conference. The presentation—titled ‘Spread Far, Stretched Thin’—mapped affordable housing needs in North Carolina. The three main points of the presentation are:
- Living in substandard or unaffordable housing has effects that can last a lifetime.
- Lack of safe, decent, and affordable housing is a statewide issue in North Carolina.
- Lack of affordable housing is getting worse for many in the state.
It drew, in part, on CURS’s recent Extreme Housing Conditions in North Carolina report.
The presentation can be found here. We will profile the research presented at the conference in upcoming blog posts – stay tuned!
