Municipal Economic Opportunities Project Report helps form Asset Building Coalition

Winston-Salem is one of three cities throughout North Carolina that was selected to participate in the Corporation for Enterprise Development's Municipal Economic Opportunities Project (MEOP). The MEOP Report examines asset poverty in Forsyth County and Winston-Salem. This is a valuable tool as organizations like New Century IDA continue to work towards alleviating poverty in our community by helping low-moderate income individuals become financially literate homeowners. As a result of the MEOP report, Winston-Salem agencies have formed the Asset Building Coalition which was officially announced March 14 to community businesses of Winston-Salem.
