APRIL IS FAIR HOUSING MONTH
"Shared opportunity in every community."
Advancing religious liberty
HUD as well as a number of other Federal agencies including HHS & the VA, USDA & the Justice Department, the Departments of Labor & of Commerce, have issued a Final Rule with new religious liberty protections for beneficiaries of their programs & activities while insuring that faith-based providers can compete for government funds on the same basis as any other private organization. "As HUD seeks to help build ladders of opportunity for all Americans," said HUD Secretary Castro, "these new protections benefit both grantees and beneficiaries." It requires, for example, that all decisions about Federal financial assistance be based solely on merit, "without regard to an organization's religious character, affiliation or lack thereof." At the same time, it provides that a beneficiary of a HUD-funded program "cannot be discriminated against based on religion" and " cannot be required to attend or participate in any privately funded religious activities that are offered separate" from the HUD-funded activity. The regulations, says Melissa Rogers of The White House Office of Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships, "build on widespread agreement that we can and should do more to protect the religious liberty of beneficiaries and provide greater clarity and transparency about applicable church-state rules,"
Opening e-doors, crossing a divide in Seattle
Thanks to a partnership between Comcast & HUD's ConnectHome initiative, some 5,800 Seattle Housing Authority households now have the opportunity to "close the digital divide" through Comcast's Internet Essentials service. Residents can now sign-up for the service at a cost of $9.95 per month plus taxes. If they are in need of a computer, Comcast will provide those at a cost of $150. The Secretary said that ConnectHome partnerships in 28 cities are "leveling the playing field for public housing residents across the nation and opening doors to prosperity that otherwise would remain closed." Joined by Comcast's David L. Cohen, the Secretary announced that public housing households in Miami-Dade County, Philadelphia & Nashville would also be eligible for Comcast's Internet Essentials service.
RAD's efforts to generate private investment in public housing reaches milestone
HUD's Rental Assistance Demonstration initiative has passed a huge milestone – generating more than $2 billion in private investment capital to upgrade some 30,000 formerly public housing units. In a typical year the nation loses some 10,000 public housing units because of deterioration, creating a "supply side crisis" in a nation where many cities and towns are experiencing severe shortages of affordable housing. For at least a decade, HUD has told its partners that it will not have sufficient billions of public dollars to address public housing's backlogged and current capital needs. RAD was proposed by HUD and approved by Congress to permit housing authorities to convert some of their HUD-assisted units from the public housing to the project-based voucher funding stream, thereby making them eligible to seek private capital to meet their capital needs. "Crossing the $2 billion mark," said HUD Secretary Castro, "represents the critical need to maintain and expand affordable housing stock to expand opportunity for more Americans seeking a quality and affordable place to live."
NEW TO USE
HUD has posted fiscal year 2016 income limits on-line. Their effective date was March 28th, 2016.

Oregon expands uses to which IDA savings put to achieve financial security
In 3015 just under 5,000 Oregonians participated in the Oregon Individual Development Account program under which they develop a savings plan that, once their goal is reached is matched by an average of $3 from revenues generated by an Oregon state tax credit. The savers, traditionally, use their savings to buy a home, obtain an education or to open a small business. The program, says Margaret Van Vliet, executive director of Oregon Housing & Community Services that administers the program through a network of more than a dozen nonprofit organizations, enables low-income Oregonians "to access pathways out of poverty and to build financial security for themselves and their families." Even more pathways are sure to open with her announcement that an additional $9.35 million for the program in 2016.Maybe even better news is that the Legislature has expanded the range of activities to which the savings can be put has been expanded. Participants will now be able to pay down medical or student debt, to prepare for retirement, re-entry or transition out of foster care, even to buy a reliable vehicle to get to and from work or the kids to and from school. . .Washington State Housing Finance Commission okays $5 million loan fund to help Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Spokane & Tacoma build 25 homes each over next 5 years.
The secret to Seattle's success? The neighborhoods we call home.
Ted Clifton of Bellingham, Washington takes his solar seriously. Very seriously. Visit the2700 square-foot "power house" he's built and you won't find any envelopes with utility bills on the kitchen table. That's because, reports Dean Kahn of The Herald, he doesn't get any. His entire two-story house is powered by the sun. And, oh yeah, so are the two cars in his garage. And all at a cost of just about $150 a square-foot or, notes Kahn. "which puts it in the mainstream of residential construction costs." Net zero works just fine, Clifton adds. ""You don't have to give up all your luxury items to have a super-efficient energy house,"
TOO SMALL TO FAIL
There's a very good chance you've never heard of Alatna, Alaska, a village of 12 homes and 35 people on the north bank of the Koyukuk River about 190 miles northwest of Fairbanks. Northwest HUDLines hadn't heard of it either until HUD's Alaska Office of Native American Programs advised us that it had approved a February 2016 request from the Village for a $450,000 "imminent threat grant under HUD's Indian Community Development Block Grant program. A year earlier fire had swept through the heart of the community, badly damaging a building that included a laundromat, multi-purpose room and a water treatment system, the only source of potable water for residents. In the days that followed, residents could cross over the still-frozen Koyukuk to get water in the village of Allakaket 5 miles away, but it was clear that, come the spring ice break-up, the crossing would soon be too dangerous and the residents cut-off from potable water. Fortunately, Governor Bill Walker declared an emergency, freeing up funds to allow for a temporary repair of the treatment system. HUD's "imminent threat grant" combined with $850,000 from the state Department of Homeland Security & Emergency Management will allow for a permanent fix, restoring the center and, in particular, the treatment system to good working order. It's a smart investment of $1.3 million. Sure, Alatna is small, very small. But the area has been settled for centuries, the place that generations of Athabascan, Kobuk, Selawik and Nunamiut people have had the privilege and pleasure to call home. With these modest public investments, hopefully generations future will have the same.
Can the new & the not-so-new get along?
KUOW's Kara McDermott & Jeanine Yandel recently paid a visit to a couple in Shoreline, Washington that invited 16 homeless people to pitch their tents in their back yard. "There are still a lot of good people around, you just have to get to know them to find out who they are," he said. "There's a lot of times where I go, man, the world stinks. It's not worth it anymore. And then something comes along like this and changes the whole outlook for me." It's worth a listen

"Affordability" as a synonym for near "impossibility"
In almost every American community, big or small, urban or rural affordable housing is hard to find. It's hardest-to-find, no surprise, for renters with the very lowest household incomes, those at 30 percent or less of an area's median income. Especially, it turns out, if you live in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon or Washington State. Nationwide, the National Low Income Housing Coalition recently reported, there are on average 31 affordable rental units on the market for every 100 extremely low income families. At the high end, there are 64 units per 100 in North Dakota and 63 in Vermont and 50 in West Virginia. Nevada's the leader at the low end with just 17 units per 100, followed closely by Alaska with 21 units, Oregon with 22, Idaho with 27 and Washington with 29. All told, the Coalition found, "there are only 3.2 million affordable and available rental units for the 10.4 million ELI renter households."
WORTH A READ
Seriously solar in Bellingham
"Poor families are stuck. Because they are already at the bottom of the market, they can't get cheaper housing unless they uproot their lives, quit their jobs and leave the city. Those with eviction records are pushed into substandard private housing in high-crime neighborhoods because many landlords and public housing authorities turn them away. When poor families finally find a new place to rent, they often start off owing their landlord because they simply can't pay the first and last month's rent and a security deposit. When tenants are behind, protections designed to keep housing safe and decent dissolve. Tenants in arrears tempt eviction if they report housing problems. It's not that low-income renters don't know their rights. They know that exercising those rights could cost them. So many go on paying most of what they have to live with lead paint, exposed wires and broken plumbing. Saving and stability become wishes, and some days children go hungry because the rent eats first." – "The Eviction Economy," The New York Times, March 5th, 2016, by Matthew Desmond, John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University.
WORTH A LISTEN
Meagen Limes of Washington, D.C. is a case in point. She's the head of one of those extremely low-income households. At 28 she's already spent lots of years struggling with the shortage of affordable housing, the eviction process, the challenge of making the nut. And, since she's still only 1,000th on the housing authority's waiting list for subsidized housing it looks like she'll be doing it many more. NPR's Pam Fessler spent some time with her as she waited to see if this was the day she'd be evicted – again.
QUOTE TO NOTE
On time & affordable housing
"You can't find a way to stabilize a person who is living on the streets. You can't do anything else for them. So, we meet them where they're at. . .People on the streets don't get better by themselves." -- St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County, Oregon Terry McDonald at a March 4, 2016, Eugene City Club discussion with Jacob Fox, of Housing & Community Services on solving the puzzle of affordable housing in Lane County,
"The work we do here in Washington, D.C. is often informed by innovations in the field. Each one of us knew Bill (Hobson) not just as an innovator, but as a fearless leader and a giant in the quest to end homelessness. His work and energy to ensure that everyone experiencing homelessness is treated with dignity and that everyone have a safe place to live is the foundation of our work and of the work of all those across the country who have taken up the cause to end homelessness. Housing First – Bill's legacy in Seattle and across the country – is fundamental to our progress. From our perspective, perhaps the most important legacy he leaves us is the positive impact on the lives of all those served by DESC and by programs inspired by Bill's work. Any one of us would be proud to have a legacy such as his. Every one of us will work to make sure his legacy continues to light the way as we pursue ending homelessness." – Excerpted from a March 11, 2016 open letter on the passing of Bill Hobson,former executive director of Seattle's Downtown Emergency Center, signed by numerous colleagues – and friends – at HUD & the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness
