North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Charlotte Housing Policy Meeting

NCHC is pleased to announce its first in a series of six meetings around the state on housing and consumer protection issues. Learn what has and will happen legislatively and hear from local community members about the housing-related issues that should influence our legislative agendas.
The morning session will focus on state-level policy related to housing funding, consumer protections, landlord/tenant law, and housing for individuals with disabilities. After the provided lunch, HUD staff will discuss Federal funding issues with particular attention to HUD's sustainability initiatives. Both segments will include time to share information about what is happening in the community.
