COVID Funding Update
State lawmakers kicked off the 2021 legislative session with modifications to the 2020 COVID relief bill. The first COVID bill of the year also gave necessary legislative action on the new round of Federal funding. Included was $547 million for rent relief. Your Government Affairs staff is currently working with the NC General Assembly and program administrators and have requested modifications to the rent relief program. Please check future Advocates for updates.
NCR GADs are actively monitoring bills filed at the local level and tracking local issues. One such issue of concern to NCR is Inclusionary Zoning. Read more here.
We also offer support of many local issues. The Greensboro Regional REALTORS® Association recently sent a letter to the Greensboro City Council in support of Greensboro’s Nondiscrimination Ordinance. This was a great way to show that REALTORS® support fair housing. Click here to read the letter.
