Here are some examples of innovative affordable housing programs
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo, Nov 19, 1998, awarded nearly $800,000 to non-profit groups serving Paterson, New Jersey to train 53 high school drop-outs to build and renovate low-income housing and to support themselves as construction workers.
Housing authorities provide modest, clean and comfortable housing units for low-income families and for the elderly and disabled on fixed incomes. In addition, many housing authorities have offices that provide meeting places for educational and community events.
The Sunnyvale City Council approved a $1.2 million loan to First San Jose Housing to develop a 30-unit apartment complex on Weddell Drive for low-income residents.
The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs announced Thursday that the agency's governing board has approved 66 affordable-housing developments to receive $27.1 million in low-income housing tax credits. The tax credits were awarded through the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program that began in 1987.
The Chicago Low Income Housing Trust Fund (the "Trust Fund") was created by Mayor Richard M. Daley in 1989. The Trust Fund oversees rental assistance programs that meet the permanent housing needs of Chicago's poorest residents by providing grants to building owners and developers who agree to reduce rents to accomodate very low-income residents. .
There are many examples of why so many people are earning low income. The problem is usually caused by insufficient education, funding and planning at some point in the lives of those affected. We are aware of many of the causes and our perspectives are not only based on recognized facts, but on personal experience.
To encourage and facilitate "community self-development" in the twin-cites area, we are going to actively pursue a relationship with the Minnesota Housing Partnership.
The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless has the only statewide homelessness prevention program to leverage local efforts to provide housing and services needed to end homelessness. The Coalition informs the public about homelessness, its causes, and ways each person can take responsibility for ending homelessness.
