We would like to thank all of our attendees, sponsors and exhibitors for coming out and supporting affordable housing at the 2017 North Carolina Housing Conference. Remember, the education doesn’t have to end just because the conference is over! You can find many of the conference presentations here.
If you missed this year’s conference or just want to relive its highlights, check out photos from the event and watch the moving videos celebrating this year’s Housing North Carolina Award winners.
And, don’t forget to mark your calendar for next year’s conference, October 24-25, 2018, at the Raleigh Convention Center. For updates on next year’s conference, be sure to follow @HousingWorksNC, and don’t forget to join the conversation with #HousingWorks!
Established in 1990, CICCAR is a regional lending consortium offering permanent financing for affordable multifamily housing in six Southeastern states. With funding provided by a network of approximately 100 member institutions, CICCAR loans leverage the financial resources of the banking industry to support the development and preservation of high-quality apartment communities with rents that are affordable to families and seniors earning 60% or less of area median income. To date, CICCAR has financed over 20,000 units in more than 350 properties across the Southeast.
The NC Housing Coalition is a private, non-profit membership organization working for decent, affordable housing that promotes self-determination and stable communities for low- and moderate-income North Carolinians. Our mission is to lead a movement to ensure that every North Carolinian has a home in which to live with dignity and opportunity. This mission is supported through three primary activities: serving as a resource and referral network for individuals looking for housing assistance and for organizations looking for information; serving as a clearinghouse for best practices, research and data on housing issues in North Carolina; and leading a campaign to empower people to improve housing policy-making by increasing resources, program effectiveness and consumer protections.
The NC 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, it 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, finances the development of affordable apartments and homes, and special-needs housing, finances rehab and emergency repairs of owner-occupied homes, and offers foreclosure prevention assistance. Since its 1973 creation by the General Assembly, the Agency has financed 255,000 affordable homes and apartments, totaling $19.2 billion.
