MIchael WebbPI. This project will evaluate the North Carolina Community Development Initiative’s (NCCDI) disaster recovery work in eastern North Carolina in response to flooding from Hurricane Matthew. NCCDI’s work includes making low-cost loans to housing developers and property management companies to rehabilitate and construct affordable housing, as well as acquiring properties in neighborhoods in Rocky Mount that are less susceptible to flooding. The evaluation itself will comprise quantitative analysis of programmatic outputs collected by NCCDI, interviews with residents of NCCDI-funded projects and local stakeholders, and mapping of NCCDI investments vis-à-vis areas flooded by Matthew.
