In this second of our five-part Lunch & Learn series, join us for an important discussion of what affordable housing means in Charlotte today. Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in America: in fact, the U.N. recently projected it will be the fastest growing area in the U.S. through 2030. The cost of renting or buying a home has skyrocketed, and many, including teachers, firefighters, and nurses can't afford housing.

In this second of our five-part Lunch & Learn series, join us for an important discussion of what affordable housing means in Charlotte today.

 

Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in America: in fact, the U.N. recently projected it will be the fastest growing area in the U.S. through 2030. The cost of renting or buying a home has skyrocketed, and many, including teachers, firefighters, and nurses can't afford housing. 

 

According to data released by the city of Charlotte, we need an additional 24,000 units of affordable housing to meet the current need, which means more than 55,000 Charlotteans don't currently have an affordable place to live. That's three quarters of the Panthers stadium!!! 

 

Recently, City Government and the nonprofit and private sectors have launched initiatives to address this issue. Come and participate in a conversation with Pamela Wideman, Director of Charlotte’s Housing & Neighborhood Services Programs, and Kathy Cummings, Senior Vice President, Bank of America Homeownership Solutions & Strategic Relationships to learn what “affordable housing” means in our present economy, who is most impacted, why is this a problem now, and how government, nonprofits, businesses, and residents can all work towards solutions. 

 

Lunch will be provided with your RSVP. Please ask a guest to join us! Tickets are $20.00
