What We Do
The City of Concord launched the Concord Family Enrichment Association, now WeBuild Concord in May of 2021. WeBuild Concord is a as a nonprofit established to develop equitable strategies for affordable housing and merge private, public and social resources for wealth creation and economic mobility for residents. Beginning with the 2020-2021 fiscal budget, the city gave 1 cent of the tax rate to affordable housing. This investment is set to recur each year, equaling $2.8 million for affordable housing: $1.4 million from the recurring tax rate and $1.4 million from the city’s return on investment the previous year.
Future housing projects scheduled for the beginning of 2022, will be developed with resources from WeBuild Concord, the City of Concord, and Cabarrus County. The Lincoln Street Townhomes Project, a 26-unit townhome development, will provide residents earning less than 80 percent of the area median income (AMI) an opportunity to own their homes. The Lincoln Street Project will be in the historic Logan Community. WeBuild Concord also announced a partnership with the City of Concord to provide several single-family homes during the same period.
Who We Serve
Concord and Cabarrus County residents who are low- and moderate-income renters and homebuyers.
How We Impact
WeBuild will work with public and private partners to purchase land, properties, or units (joint ventures included) to develop affordable housing to serve households at or below 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). Add at least 80 units.
