The CONNECT Our Future project, a fourteen county area of North and South Carolina and led by the Centralina Council of Governments (CCOG), is embarking on an effort to prepare a regional growth framework, one that grows jobs and the economy, improves quality of life and controls the cost of government. The project is supported by a substantial US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Sustainable Communities Grant and local in-kind public and private matching resources. As part of this effort, the CCOG is creating a Comprehensive Regional Housing Strategy.
A critical piece of the housing evaluation is a survey to identify whether barriers to fair housing choice exist, such as limitations in available choice in rental markets, public and private policies and practices that inadvertently lead to housing discrimination, or poor practices in mortgage lending, insurance, or appraisal industries.
A second survey seeks feedback on the overall Housing Needs in the Charlotte Region.
We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to take part in this important research effort. Each of the online surveys should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
Please feel free to forward this post and the online survey link to anyone else you feel would like to participate in this research!
