The City of Charlotte will host the Faith and Housing Summit on May 30, bringing together faith leaders, city officials, community services agencies and affordable housing practitioners to explore opportunities for partnerships to advance affordable housing options for Charlotte residents.

Today is the last day to register for free at cltgov.me/faith. Advance registration is required.

The summit will be held 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center and will focus on affordable housing with experts discussing “how to turn their ideas into a reality”. Topics will include:

  • utilizing faith-owned land for affordable housing development.
  • financial strategies for faith communities to support housing initiatives.
  • transforming underutilized spaces into vibrant community assets.

“Our city’s strength lies in its diversity and inclusivity, and that starts with ensuring everyone has a place to call home,” said Mayor Vi Lyles. “I’m calling on our community to join us at the Faith and Housing Summit.

“Your voices are crucial in shaping the solutions we need to tackle this pressing issue together and build a future where every resident has access to safe, affordable housing.”

Attendees will learn from real-life examples of how other faith communities have partnered with housing providers/developers and local government to build and support affordable housing and community development. The full agenda for the summit can be found on the Faith and Housing Summit webpage.

“This summit represents a unique convergence of spiritual and civic commitment to address the crucial issue of affordable housing,” said Liz Ward of Give Impact Advisory Services. “It has been incredible to see the receptivity. There is so much we can achieve when we come together for a common cause, and we’re excited to see this initiative unfold.”
