Making the case for decent and affordable housing

Chris Estes, the long-time head of the North Carolina Housing Coalition [1], will assume the top spot as president and CEO of the National Housing Conference [2] in Washington, DC later this month.

This weekend, Estes joins us on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon to talk about regional growth, the shortage of affordable rental housing amid a rise in foreclosures, and the need for more funding for the N.C. Housing Trust Fund.

(The final state budget  for FY 2012-2013 included a $7.8M one-time cut to the Trust Fund, but diverted funds from the national mortgage settlement to backfill that cut.)
