Join 1053 RNB’s for a “Conversation About Affordable Homeownership” with Olympia D (The Olympia D. Show) & DreamKey Partners and the City of Charlotte for a discussion on affordable homeownership. 

Julie Porter, and Fred Dodson, Jr., COO & EVP of Real Estate Development, discuss issues driving the gap in BIPOC homeownership in Charlotte and provide solutions to advance fair opportunity in housing.  Along with Shawn Heath, Housing & Neighborhood Services Director for the City of Charlotte Government, they noted several key facts that have led to disparities, such as income. Nationally, 35% of White households earn $100,000 or more and are 40% more likely to be able to afford to buy a home compared to Black households. Only 20% of Black households earn $100,000.
