Dr. Stephen Sills

Dr. Stephen Sills (Center for Housing and Community Studies) received new funding from the Rocky Mount Housing and Revitalization Initiative, LLC, for the project “Rocky Mount Revitalization Initiative: Data Consolidation, Community Building, Evaluation Design and Technical Assistance.”

The abstract states that the overall objective of the research is to identify systemic public and private issues across neighborhoods within Rocky Mount, as well as creating multi-factor market prioritization maps, tables and reports for presentation at the project’s conclusion. The project will demonstrate target investment areas and opportunities, indicated areas of most cost savings, zones of high cost-burdened households and the “lost” value of vacant, substandard or abandoned property.
