WUNC: Greensboro Eviction Rates Are Among The Highest In The Country

On May 10, 2018, Frank Stacio and Dana Terry interviewed Dr. Stephen Sills about Greensboro’s eviction rates, for WUNC’s The State of Things: 

“Stephen Sills is the director of The Center for Housing and Community Studies at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. He says there is plenty of housing in Greensboro, but the problem is it is not affordable. The hunt for affordable housing has created a market where there is no incentive for landlords to work with tenants. If someone is evicted, there is a steady stream of people behind him.

“Sills joins host Frank Stasio to talk about the affordable housing crisis in Greensboro and how it may be spreading to cities like Rocky Mount. Sills has spoken to landlords and those who have been evicted, and he is working with the court system, researchers and advocates to create solutions.”
