In 2002, the NC Housing Coalition and the Center to Create Housing Opportunities developed the Campaign for Housing Carolina, a statewide public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the necessary members of our communities who live in affordable housing. Based on a successful model from Minnesota, the campaign empowers local communities to work for change in their regions.
In the summer of 2004, the Housing Coalition brought together a core group of organizations to shift the Campaign to a more specific impact for our housing advocacy. The objective of the Campaign for Housing Carolina is to build strong and widespread public support for a $50 million annual appropriation to the North Carolina Housing Trust Fund.
The Campaign for Housing Carolina is led by the NC Housing Coalition, NC Justice Center, United Way of NC, NC Coalition to End Homelessness, A.J. Fletcher Foundation, NC Association of CDCs, AARP-NC, NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Arc-NC, and with the support of the NC Housing Finance Agency.
