The North Carolina Housing Coalition will hold a series of housing counseling trainings in partnership with NCRC. These intensive trainings are designed to equip housing counselors with tools and best practices to address essential housing counseling topics such as homeownership, foreclosure, and mental health. For each half-day course, participants who attend and pass a final exam will earn a certificate that can be counted toward TAHC recertification.

The series begins on February 18th with “Effective Rental Counseling.” This five-hour training will provide housing counselors an opportunity to learn how to do rental counseling from start to finish all from the convenience of their computer. This course was created to make sure the counselor and housing agency are in full compliance with HUD and National Industry Standards for rental counseling. Read the full course description and register here.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
