Housing in focus

Three North Carolina nonprofits are holding a series of meetings throughout the state to provide an analysis of the state’s budget, taxes, economy and housing needs.

The N.C. Justice Center, United Way of North Carolina and the N.C. Housing Coalition have teamed up to provide the N.C. Policy Outlook sessions.

The Justice Center will look at budget and tax issues, including matters for the coming year, and provide an overview of the economy and its effects on the workforce.

The Housing Coalition will look at challenges North Carolinians face in finding quality housing they can afford, along with potential solutions, issues that are the focus of the Campaign for Housing Carolina, an effort to increase the availability of affordable housing in the state.

The campaign is a joint effort of the coalition, United Way of North Carolina, the Justice Center, the Association of Community Development Corporations and the A.J. Fletcher Foundation, which publishes the Philanthropy Journal.

Meetings were held in Greensboro on Nov. 11 and Asheville on Nov. 12.

Four additional sessions are scheduled:

* Dec. 1 — Wilmington

* Dec. 17 – Greenville

* Dec. 9 – Charlotte

* Dec. 10 – Raleigh
