What is Chapel Hill going to do about the Housing Crisis? New report has proposals.

Reporter Tammy Grubb reported on responses to the Town of Chapel Hill's new report on what can be done about the Affordable Housing Crisis in Orange County. 

Her article came out in Chapel Hill News on October 20th. Read the full article here: http://www.chapelhillnews.com/2013/10/17/3288717/chapel-hill-housing-report-sparks.html

Let's see what comes of it! 

Section 8 Housing Recipients Face Reduction in Voucher Value

This is a follow-up to several earlier posts about Section 8 Housing in Orange County. Read them first for background. 

On behalf of the Chapel Hill/Carrboro Just Housing Coalition, my assistant and I just talked to a lawyer with Justice NC, who confirmed that the reduction in HUD funding due to the federal sequestration is going to result in lower voucher values for Section 8 recipients. 

Section 8 Housing Crisis Update

I am actively seeking help to address this problem. As I wrote before, we are looking at the possibility a lot of newly homeless folk in Orange County. The best information I have says that the GSC decision to kick people out violates HUD, and we need to file a complaint. I don't know how to do this, but if you do, or know someone who can help, please contact me, or come to the meeting on August 2nd at the Human Rights Center in Carrboro at 4pm. 

Open Letter to Govenor McCrory

Dear Govenor McCrory:

Please pubically come out against Bill 589. And to veto the Bill. The bill takes away constitutional rights of people with disabilities, like me. 

I have CP, and I'm in an electric wheelchair, and the only way I can vote is to vote early, and once in awhile I have to vote provisionally. I have voted provisionally twice, because it is too hard to get to my precinct. The bill takes away these options. And, with the bill, my staff can't come with me anymore and get paid. And it makes it harder for people who aren't their own guardians to vote. This is against the ADA reasonable accomodations. 

You all should think twice about this. BEFORE passing it. 

From, 

Ellen Perry
