Habitat Wake’s Second Local Lobby Day: what we advocated for, and what we took away

March 28, 2023

On Wednesday, March 22, advocates from across Wake County came together to participate in Habitat Wake’s 2nd annual Local Lobby Day.

Throughout the day, Habitat volunteers, homebuyers, homeowners, and concerned residents met with local elected officials from the Wake County Commission and Raleigh City Council.  

It’s budget season, which means it was a great time to meet with policymakers to emphasize the need for additional funding for affordable housing in local budgets. Local government dollars are a critical source of funding for affordable housing projects, like Habitat’s Old Poole Place development in Raleigh.
