On October 26, 2017, CURS Researcher Michael Webb made a presentation to the North Carolina Housing Conference. Titled “Spread Far, Stretched Thin,” Webb mapped affordable housing needs in North Carolina. The three main points of the presentation, as illustrated in his Urban 2 Point 0 blog post, are:
- Living in substandard or unaffordable housing has effects that can last a lifetime.
- Lack of safe, decent, and affordable housing is a statewide issue in North Carolina.
- Lack of affordable housing is getting worse for many in the state.
Webb’s presentation drew, in part, on CURS’s recent Extreme Housing Conditions in North Carolina report.
