ON THE MOVE
Effective June 28th, HUD Idaho's office have moved to 1249 S Vinnell Way, Suite 108, in Boise. The new ZIP Code is 83709 but the phone number - 208/334-1990 - remains
Fulfilling the promise
Congratulations to the Spokane Tribe of Indians, one of nine communities chosen from among 82 applicants from 38 states as the last round of Promise Zones. Launched by the Obama Administration, the now 30 Promise Zones receive priority access to federal investments that further their strategic plans, federal staff on the ground to help them implement their goals, and five full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members to recruit and manage volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the Promise Zone initiatives. As a Promise Zone, the Tribe hopes to "increase quality of life and break the cycle of persistent poverty in the Tribe." By working with partners like the Spokane Tribal & Kootenai-Salish colleges, the local school district, Tribal police and Tribal housing, the Minnesota Partnership, the Tulalip Tribe Rural Community Assistance Corporation, USDA & HUD, the Tribe plans to create quality employment, spur economic development, improve educational opportunities, reduce violent crème and promote affordable housing. "As a former mayor from a city that includes a Promise Zone," said HUD Secretary Castro, "I know just how powerful" Promise Zone "collaborations are when it comes to building stronger, economically vital neighborhoods." Agriculture Secretary Vilsack whose agency selected the Spokane Tribe as a Zone added "through these partnerships, we are supporting jobs and economic opportunities that enable rural areas to thrive."
Ramping up for homeless vets
Congratulations, too, to the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, Idaho Housing & Finance Association and the Boise, Pocatello, Eugene, Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Vancouver, Walla Walla, Central Oregon, Northeast Oregon and the Clackamas, Lincoln, Umatilla, Washington, Chelan, King, Skagit, Snohomish & Thurston county housing authorities for winning an additional 330 HUD Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing vouchers to provide permanent, affordable housing to homeless veterans in our region. Most of these organizations previously have received VASH vouchers, but we are pleased that the housing resources are now also available in Lincoln County, Oregon & Skagit County, Washington as a result of this funding round. We're also pleased that housing authorities in our region now have more than 5,000 HUD VASH vouchers representing an annual commitment of some $35 million available to support their efforts to end homelessness in their communities. We hope future funding rounds will continue to enhance their efforts.
NEWS TO USE
HOME posts 2016 limits
HUD publishes fiscal year 2016 HOME Investment Partnership income & rent limits effective June 6th, 2016.
HUD has published a rule in The Federal Register proposing that housing authorities serving 31 specified metropolitan areas - including the Tacoma/Lakewood metro - be given the discretion to set Fair Market Rents for housing units receiving HUD rental assistance under the HUD Housing Choice Voucher program on the basis of ZIP Code-specific - and not area-wide - market conditions. Comments are due on August 15th. The Small Area Fair Market Rent rule, says HUD Secretary Castro, would give the authorities greater opportunities to target their HUD resources and would give assisted "household's greater choice to move into higher opportunity neighborhoods with better housing, better schools and higher paying jobs." Last year Harvard University social scientists reported that "children who moved to low-poverty neighborhoods when they were young are doing better as adults, with significantly higher earnings and a greater likelihood of having attended college" than children who don't move. Comments are due August 15th.
Honoring work well done
If you're the kind of person who reads Northwest HUDLines, we'd also like to believe you're the kind person who likes to do nice things for people. So, here's one idea. The Washington Housing Finance Commission has set a July 22nd deadline to submit nominations for 2016 Friends of Housing Awards. As you've probably guessed, the Awards honor a person's contributions to the cause of affordable housing and the people it serves. So, we're pretty sure there's a person or two out there that you know that you believe affordable housing & community development couldn't do without. So, what do you say? Why not nominate them for a 2016 Friends of Housing Award!

THE WARRIOR WAY
Taking care of one's own
We sometimes want to believe that homelessness is a big-city problem. In fact, homelessness is everywhere, in communities big, small and everywhere in between. The good news is that - as demonstrated by the speed and effectiveness with which the Yakama Nation has put HUD VASH Vouchers to work - the commitment to ending it is just as "everywhere" too.
Seattle once again shows the way
The Seattle Housing Authority is one of just three organizations nationwide to win a 2016 HUD Secretary's Healthy Homes Award, presented at the annual conference of the annual conference of the National Environmental Health Association in San Antonio. Why did they win. Here's a clue - it relates to something each of us does about 5.6 million a year. Intrigued?
A TEXAN'S TAKE
Large lessons from our largest state
Ever since Alaska entered the Union and displaced Texas as our nation's largest state, at least a few of us always worry just a bit about how someone from the Lone Star State will react the first time they touch ground in America's Last Frontier. One of the most recent Texans to do so is one of HUD's own, General Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public & Indian Housing Lourdes Castro Ramirez. Far from what nervous nellies like me might fear, she returned to Washington, D.C. enthralled. Read why.
A legacy that's a work in progress
On the last day of June hundreds of friends, colleagues and admirers of the late Bill Hobson gathered at Seattle City Hall to say one last farewell. One of the founders and the long-time executive director of the Downtown Emergency Service Center in Seattle, Washington, Bill was a revolutionary, turning the world of those who serve and advocate on behalf of the homeless upside down, merely by pointing-out the now obvious fact that encouraging, cajoling and persuading the chronically-homeless to come in off the streets isn't made easier, but harder, with each new obstacle put in their way. Some call his approach Housing First, others "no-strings-attached" and still others "low-threshold" housing. No matter the label, where it's been tried - Seattle, Anchorage, Fairbanks - it's worked. And now it's about to be tried in Juneau.
Executive director Michael Mirra & his colleagues at the Tacoma Housing Authority are in a pretty celebratory mood these days. For good reason. In June two families signed the closing documents to purchase single-family home number 214 & 215 in New Salishan, a vibrant, mixed-income neighborhood developed by the Authority– with assistance from HUD's now-defunct HOPE VI public housing revitalization program - to replace acres upon acres of dilapidated public housing built in World War II. "So, what's the big deal about closing on two single-family homes?" you might ask. Not much except that they mark the final milestone, the culmination of a 15-year, $300 million project that might, says Mirra, "one of the largest redevelopments of its kind west of the Mississippi." Sounds like something worth celebrating to us! Matt Driscoll of The News Tribune tells the whole story.
The City of Portland has won $1,283,497 in funds from HUD & the Department of Justice to provide rental assistance and supportive services and permanent housing to 14 households with members who are living with AIDS and who are the victims of domestic/dating/stalking violence. The City will partner with the Cascade AIDS Project as well and Bradley Angle in a $9.2 million national demonstration project based on a Federal interagency working group to determine how communities can help "low-income individuals with HIV/AIDS who have survived domestic violence secure the vital services they need to reclaim their lives and restore their futures," explained Attorney General Lynch. In addition to Portland, projects also were competitively funded in Los Angeles, San Joe, Kansas City Orleans, New York, Washington D.C. & Troy, New York. "Every person, especially those fighting the effects of HIV/AIDS or looking to escape an abusive situation," said HUD Secretary Castro, "deserves to live in a safe and stable environment."

"The hard work of craftsmanship is getting the money," you've probably heard some of your colleagues complain. "The easy part's giving it away." We agree. Sort of. Consider, after all, the position Candy Solovjovs, director of programs for the Meyer Memorial Trust out of Portland, Oregon finds herself in just about now. As you may know, the Trist is a longstanding and generous supporter of good causes in general, affordable housing and community development in particular. After an almost year-long "re-tooling" of its programmatic focus, the Trust issued a request for funding applications, expect to make some $11 million in awards this spring. Apparently, a lot of organizations seemed to have liked what the re-tooling accomplished. In a recent blog Candy, quite graciously, calls the demand "robust." Personally, I'd call it a good reason to flee the country. In any event, as you, we hope, relax and enjoy a delightful summer ahead, but that you'll every so often think of Candy and the not-quite-so-delightful summer she's having, making hard choices between lots of good ideas from very good organizations. Sometimes, it turns out, the giving is harder than the getting.
Helping communities prevent & end homelessness
HUD has set a September 14th deadline to apply for fiscal year 2016 Continuum of Care funding to provide services to homeless people through some 8,000 projects that are part of some 300 local Continuums across the country.

The affordable housing gap widens
So, what happens when Home Forward, the housing authority of Portland, Oregon, opens up its voucher waiting list for "a dozen subsidized housing properties in the Portland area?" It receives, reports Oregon Public Broadcasting, more than 6,000 applications in just the first 24 hours
WORTH A LISTEN
The June28th, 2016 edition of To The Point's entitled "Evicted & the Growing Rental Crisis," which takes a look at the current "eviction epidemic" caused by rising rents and "flat-lined incomes." Once on the merry-go-round, it seems, it's virtually impossible for many to get off. Compelling radio.
WORTH A LOOK
Housing tax levies - Vancouver's considering one. So too Thurston County, Portland & Spokane. But do they work in preserving & producing affordable housing. "Absolutely!", says Washington State Housing Finance Commission's Kim Herman in his latest issue of My Way in which he - and some other friends of affordable housing - take a look at existing levies in Seattle & Bellingham in the latest issue of My View.
WORTH A READ
Fare well, friend
Since 2008, reports The Portland Tribune, eight manufactured housing parks have closed in Oregon and no new parks have been built in recent years. "I would suspect that you're going to see a lot more closures for a lot of reasons," Terry McDonald, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County tells Steve Law of the Tribune. "If we ignore this reservoir of affordable housing," he adds, "we do so at the larger society's peril." The Portland Tribune." See why.
"It's the only way," Williams said. "This is not warehousing. This is a home where people at their lowest point in life live for several months — no shuttling around — and rebuild. I've been to San Antonio five times. Ninety-two percent of the people who leave 'Haven' graduate to go to jobs and housing. It's that effective." - Portland developer in June 14, 2016 Oregonian editorial "A giant homeless compound by the river?" on proposal by Mr Williams and his partner Dixie Dame to build "one-stop shop" on city-owned riverfront property for up to 1,400 homeless seeking housing& services similar to one in operation in San Antonio since 2010.
