Community Partners Loan Pool and Self-Help Loan Pool
The Community Partners Loan Pool and Self-Help Loan Pool created and administered by the Agency have helped thousands statewide achieve their dreams of home ownership by leveraging funding with the work of statewide partners. These programs work in conjunction with SystemVision, an affordable housing guarantee program set up by the Agency and Advanced Energy that provides incentives for builders to utilize science-based practices to keep homes energy efficient and utility costs low.
“Rapid growth causes demand to exceed supply; costs for land, materials, and labor continue to increase; and resources continue to fall behind needs. In an increasingly unaffordable housing environment, we are here to ensure that all North Carolinians have a safe place to call home.”
Cypress Court created 48 apartment homes to provide housing in an area where stock is low. Cypress Court provided a boost to the local economy, securing one of Ahoskie’s few commercial building permits in the past decade and employing more than 100 locals. The location makes it easy for residents to get to retail, medical care and other services. With a community center, playground, picnic shelter and a screened in porch, Cypress Court is more than an apartment—it’s a community.

Community Housing Solutions has expanded affordable housing for homeowners aging in place in their homes and younger home buyers too. More than 30 homeowners were helped including several elderly citizens with disabilities who may not have otherwise been able to remain. Critical repairs and accessibility modifications helped these residents age in place and avoid institutionalization. This is 1 of 4 sites in the National Center for Healthy Housing’s Aging Gracefully in Place Project.
Building Independence is much more than a supportive housing development—it’s a community for nine North Carolinians to enjoy independent living with supportive services they need to maintain their independence. An innovative collaboration between Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, the Serving Cup and Lutheran Services Carolinas, Building Independence consists of three, three-bedroom houses built by more than 400 volunteers which serves six men and three women ages 21-42.
