About the Program Initiative

COMMUNITY GOAL

Family Friendly Housing Development without Displacement

PROGRAM INITIATIVE

Hill District Homeowner/Tenant Support

Maintaining a stable neighborhood and creating a local identity depends heavily on  homeowners, who typically are long-time residents of an area. A comprehensive program could be developed to further support homeowners in the face of declining property values, foreclosure risks, and the lackluster economy. This Homeowner Support program could have the capacity to provide mortgages to populations otherwise not serviced, could
make emergency loans, and could have an educational component that might include  seminars or a resource center. Other components of the homeowner and tenant support initiative might include regular newsletter articles focused on homeowner education and a tenant resource center that offers housing information and counseling to tenants and landlords.

Goals
Enable residents to undertake critical home repairs to improve the health, safety and  appearance of their property and the neighborhood. Maintain or increase property values. Keep elderly residents in the neighborhood. Provide mortgages and emergency loans to otherwise under-served populations. Provide renters with information and resources on their rights.
