The City of Charlotte will be asking voters to support a $50 million housing bond measure on Election Day: Tuesday, November 8. The shortage of decent and affordable housing remains severe throughout the region. The City of Charlotte has a deficit of 32,000 units to meet affordable housing demands of the growing population.
If passed, this bond will support the Housing Trust Fund with needed funding for development of affordable rental and homeownership opportunities for working individuals and families who are first time homebuyers. Your vote is needed, so please get to the polls on November 8 and vote yes for housing bonds!
