After the tremendous success of Rethink the Box 2019, we at HousingX wanted to keep promoting innovation and new ideas throughout the year, not just at our main, biennial "un-conference."

So, we decided to launch a new series called xChats, which will fill in the gaps between Rethink the Box conferences with exciting panel events. Our first xChats talk was on October 9th, and featured speakers from Charlotte, NC to talk about their recent affordable housing victory.

The next xChats event is coming in Spring 2020. Click "Get Updates" to be notified of the who, what, when, and where.

Charlotte's Affordable Housing Success Story

October 9, 2019  •  3pm  •  Virginia Museum of History and Culture

Leaders in Charlotte, NC recently raised $100 million in capital for affordable housing projects. That included $50 million in housing bonds, approved by 69% of voters in Charlotte, and $50 million from private sector sources. This was an incredible achievement, one that organizations in Virginia took serious note of. What lessons can we learn from them to push us towards similar success?
