Northside Neighborhood Initiative


The Northside Neighborhood Initiative (NNI) is a collaborative effort among the Town of Chapel Hill, residents, the Jackson, Center, Self-Help, UNC, the Town of Carrboro, and area affordable housing agencies that aims to maintain and strengthen a vibrant, diverse, family-friendly neighborhood that honors the history of Northside.

Since its launch in March 2015, the NNI has made significant progress in reversing decades-long trends by increasing homeownership, balancing student rentals with family households, and supporting the retention of long-term Northside residents.
