WAYne Forward is the community's voice for affordable housing and neighborhood development. Our focus in the first half of 2020 is to provide the City of Goldsboro with strategies to address the lack of affordable housing as the city develops it's 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan and its Annual Action Plan.
Our concerns regarding housing in Goldsboro are: insufficient housing stock that meets the minimum housing code, the gap in assessing homelessness needs, limited number of landlords who participate in Section 8 voucher program, lack of a city-wide affordable housing plan and lack of public/private partnership to create a comprehensive plan, CDBG fund management, and no plan to address neighborhood resistance to affordable housing.
