Campaign for Housing Carolina
Now, more than ever... Housing builds.
In the face of unsteady housing markets and an unsettled economy, the North Carolina Housing Trust Fund has proven its power to build communities, the economy and lives.
The General Assembly appropriated $7.9 million to the Trust Fund in Fiscal Year 2012. Since its creation in 1987, the Housing Trust Fund has delivered:
- $971.4 million in housing construction and rehab
- $6.56 of housing produced for every $1 of state investment
- 17,521 construction jobs
- $122 million in local and state tax revenues
- 26,127 homes and apartments
The Trust Fund is the only state-designed and state-appropriated resource for:
- providing permanent housing for homeless families and individuals, victims of domestic violence, and persons with disabilities
- ensuring seniors and persons with disabilities can continue
living in their own homes through rehab and modification
- producing energy-efficient and “green” standard housing
- providing successful. entry-level home ownership
To reach its potential, the Trust Fund needs an adequate and reliable source of funds. It needs a substantial recurring appropriation in the 2012 Session, especially when funds are short and North Carolina’s housing and economic challenges are great. Our goal is to achieve a minimum of $50 million in annual funding. (Right: Northpoint Commons, Asheville - Family Apartments)
