As each day passes during this global pandemic, thousands of North Carolinians are facing challenges. From furloughs and layoffs to uncertainty about childcare, school openings, and, most importantly, their health, we are all trying to make our way through an uncertain future. One thing that should not be uncertain, though, is housing.
While we remain safer at home, it is essential that there are programs to assist those struggling to make rent or mortgage payments due to the financial crisis. At the same time, landlords and property managers face their own economic hardships due to tenants’ inability to pay rent and no other assistance program specifically targeted to benefit them.
House Bill 1200 provides vital rental and mortgage assistance to tens of thousands of North Carolinians through allocating federal relief money for grants. This legislation will be back before the General Assembly when they return in September, and WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure it gets across the finish line.
Tell your legislators to support House Bill 1200 and bring need relief to thousands of homeowners, renters, and landlords across our state.
Support our state. Support housing!
