GOAL held its first ever Nehemiah Action on March 28th with over 1500 people coming together to do justice! At this year's Nehemiah Action, Greenville's Mayor, and a majority of City Council, committed to work towards $10MM a year for affordable housing, with one third of that going to families most in need--those making 30% of the area median income and below.
GOAL also received similar commitments from several Greenville County Council members, and is continuing to push forward on addressing the statewide need for $3.9MM to fund the 988 call center.
Progress since the action, as well as next steps, will be reported at our Celebration on May 16th. You can read more about each of our issue campaigns by following the links below.
