The NC Affordable Housing Coalition works to ensure that every North Carolinian has a home in which to live with dignity and opportunity. The Coalition accomplishes this through advocacy and mobilization, technical assistance, and research. At this LWV-Wake Timely Topics event, Executive Director Samuel Gunter will address the affordable housing needs in both North Carolina and Wake County, the state's long-term response to recent natural disasters, and the lingering consequences of the recent government shutdown on the housing market and on families and communities with low-incomes.
