Community Input Needed

The City of Winston-Salem, in partnership with Forsyth County and the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem (HAWS), is beginning work on an Assessment of Fair Housing. This study will focus on fair and affordable housing needs in the area. It will also discuss how residents decide where to live and what neighborhoods provide the most opportunity. The Assessment is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for all cities and counties that receive federal community development and housing funds.

An important part of this study is hearing from local residents. Please share your opinions on housing and community resources at one of the following public meetings:

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 6:00 PM
Rural Hall Public Library Auditorium
7125 Broad Street, Rural Hall, NC 27045

Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 6:00 PM
Hanes Hosiery Community Center
501 Reynolds Boulevard, Winston-Salem, NC 27105

An additional meeting for HAWS residents and voucher holders will be held on:

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 6:00 PM
Cleveland Avenue Homes Community Center
1135 East 15th Street
Winston-Salem, NC 27105

You can also complete an online survey in English at surveymonkey.com/r/WinstonSalem_AFH and in Spanish at es.surveymonkey.com/r/WinstonSalem_AFH_Espanol

A draft of the completed study will be available for public review during the summer of 2017. Stay tuned to this page for updates and additional information about the project.
