NC 516 supports prospective applicants and projects that address historic inequities for marginalized communities of color and other underserved and underrepresented communities in the CoC, and produce high-quality services and housing opportunities that enable persons to remain and thrive in these communities. NC 516 strived to fund eligible applicants proposing to meet this goal with a project proposal that addresses the specific needs of marginalized communities of color, created in collaboration with community partners and persons with lived experience, which support NC 516 plans and strategies. Successful applicants demonstrated clear strategies that address inequities for underserved persons and marginalized communities for housing and/or support services in the NC 516 geographic area.
