In recognition of the deep connection between affordable housing and successful community economic development, the North Carolina Housing Coalition and the North Carolina Community Development Initiative, along with Initiative Capital, the Initiative’s lending arm, have formed a strategic partnership to meet the challenges faced by underserved communities in the state.

Through this partnership, the Housing Coalition, the Initiative and Initiative Capital are creating Thriving Communities with Opportunities for All. Together we are working to build strong communities and to support strong families. This work is rooted in safe, decent and affordable housing for all, but as not as and end in itself. Rather, it is the starting point of a broader and comprehensive community economic development strategy.
