City is partnering with landlords for more affordable housing options


Charlotte, NC — The City of Charlotte has launched a Charlotte-Mecklenburg landlord liaison consortium called housingCLT, which will create a unified, collaborative approach among landlords, service providers and homeless households to increase housing opportunities in Charlotte-Mecklenburg through education, outreach and coordination.

The housingCLT program will cultivate widespread awareness and collaboration among housing providers and human service agencies, which will increase affordable housing opportunities for people who are homeless and have diverse needs and barriers. It will be the first program of its kind in North Carolina, modeled after Seattle's successful Landlord Liaison Project, and benefiting from access to the online housing location resources and national landlord recruitment experience of Charlotte-based, a non-profit organization that provides call center services to government organizations and other non-profits.
