Northwest HUD Lines
! ! ! HAPPY 241st ! ! !
On the very last day of 2017's National Homeownership Month HUD Secretary Caron had an e-chat via Facebook about the state of homeownership in America. It's worth a watch. And, closer to home, here's what FHA - the Federal Housing Administration - and its partners are doing to promote safe, sound & smart homeownership in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon & Washington.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Secretary Carson testifies about President Trump's proposed HUD budget for fiscal year 2018
The first Secretary of HUD, Robert Weaver, said that we must look for "human solutions," not just policies and programs. I want our efforts to assist those in need and to support a path to self-sufficiency. At the same time, we are keenly focused on efficiency throughout the agency with the mindset of doing more with less.
Of course, we continue our mission. The Budget reflects the President's commitment to support HUD's critical functions, such as providing rental assistance to low-income and vulnerable households; promoting decent, safe, and affordable housing for Americans; supporting access to homeownership; and helping work-able families achieve independence, freedom from regulations and bureaucracy, and the ability to govern themselves." - HUD Secretary Ben Carson in testimony prepared for delivery before the U.S. Senate Committee's Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing & Urban Affairs & Related Agencies to discuss the President's proposed fiscal year 2018 Federal budget, June 7, 2017.
Congratulations to the City of Portland, Oregon & the City of Pocatello, Idaho, both among the 47 winners of 2017 HUD grants to address lead hazard & other risks in low-income households. Portland was awarded a $3 million lead hazard to undertake abatement in some 275 homes while Pocatello won just $1.5 million which will enable it, in collaboration with Portneuf Valley Interfaith Council, Aid For Friends, Bannock Youth Foundation, Family Services Alliance, the Housing Authority of the City of Pocatello, Southeast Idaho Community Action Agency, NeighborWorks Pocatello, the Homeless & Housing Coalition, School District #25, through their Head Start Program, the Pocatello Police Childcare Licensing Department, Health West and Poky Free Clinic, to address lead issues in just over 80 homes. In announcing the awards HUD Secretary Carson, a long-time advocate for lead reduction & healthy homes programs, noted that "Children perform better at school and in life if they live in a healthy home," adding that the grants would help make sure "homes are safe and ensure positive outcomes for families and their kids."

LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD
The past is often present as we prepare and build for our future. Consider a recent ceremony hosted by Africatown, the Black Community Impact Alliance, Capitol Hill Housing & Cornerstone on a vacant lot at 24th & Union in Seattle, Washington's Central District, long considered the center of African-American life in the city. Their purpose was to break ground for the $32 million Liberty Bank Building that will provide 115 new & much-need affordable housing units. To you or me, the site probably just look like one more vacant lot. Not so, the attendees. For them it was the ideal site, a premium site because, decades ago, it had been home to the city's first & only bank to be owned by African-Americans. The new Liberty Bank Building would commemorate the old Liberty Bank. Nor was the date picked for the ceremony - June 19th - a coincidence or an accident. It was, in fact, the 167th anniversary of Juneteenth, that day in 1865 when enslaved African-Americans in Texas belatedly, but finally learned they had been freed. Their "new beginning" back them would be commemorated by the Central District's new beginning on Juneteenth, 167 years later. Sometimes the past in our present makes us wary, even afraid of the future. Not so for those who've had the vision & the tenacity to set the new Liberty Bank Building to rising at 24th & Union. May it serve - and inspire - generations to come.
Is a new future rising?
The first world's first skyscraper - the 10-story, 138-foot Home Insurance Building in Chicago, Illinois - opened in 1885. It was built of steel and, since then, virtually every skyscraper built in the U.S. has also been made of steel. That's about to change with plans recently-unveiled by a developer, a bank & Home Forward - the housing authority in Portland, Oregon - for a new, 12-story high-rise at the corner of Northwest 10th & Glisan in the city's Pearl District. It will be built not of steel, but of cross-laminated timber panels manufactured by a woman-owned lumber company in the town of Riddle some 120 miles south of Portland on Interstate 5. When completed what's to be called framework will be the tallest wooden building in the nation. It could revolutionize American architecture &, of equal importance, revive the Northwest's flagging timber industry. See why.

Are race-based disparities disappearing?
Thank goodness for academics. Sometimes the work they do can put a fresh face on old facts. Like a study that's just been published by Johns Hopkins University which takes a look at the prospects of kids who grow up in subsidized housing and, in particular, a child's race place a role in whether things turn out well or badly. "Once-formidable disparities between black and white families living in subsidized housing have largely vanished." Both black and white children "similarly in school, jobs and earnings." Earlier studies, they add, "suggested blacks were treated differently in assisted housing" but their work "suggests we're not seeing that anymore," That said, they do report a significant downside - i.e., "black families getting subsidized housing are about nine time more likely than whites to live in segregated, impoverished neighborhoods."
Out of reach. . .again
The National Low Income Housing Coalition has released its annual report entitled Out of Reach: The High Cost of Housing. The bad news? No matter the state where you live, an affordable place to call home remains well out-of-reach for low-income Americans. "In no state, even those where the minimum wage has been set above the federal level," it finds, "can a minimum wage renter working a 40-hour work week afford a modest two-bedroom rental unit." No exceptions. To do that closer to home, a worker earning the minimum-wage would have to work 77 hours a week in Oregon, work 86 hours a week in Washington, 87 hours a week in Idaho & work 99 hours a week in Alaska. The good news? It takes 152 hours a week at the minimum wage to afford that 2-=bedroom rental in Hawaii. And, even closer to home, the report includes data at the Zip Code level.
Who is Pam Patenaude?
"Housing has always been close to my heart and part of my family history. My late parents, Bob and Estella Hughes, together created and ran a successful homebuilding business in New Hampshire. In the Hughes household, there was simply no escaping talk about housing. For that reason, it was no surprise to my parents when I came to share their passion for housing. . .My career in housing at the local, state and federal levels of government has broadened my view of America's housing policies. This unique perspective helps me understand the factors that contribute to the success of some programs, as well as the factors that diminish the well-intended impacts of other programs. As Matthew Desmond articulated in his Pulitzer Prize winning book Evicted, "we have failed to fully appreciate how deeply housing is implicated in the creation of poverty." Dr. Desmond believes that, "powerful solutions are within our collective reach." I agree with Dr. Desmond and believe that as a nation, we must recognize that housing is not just a commodity but a foundation for economic mobility and personal growth." - HUD Deputy Secretary-designate Pamela Hughes Patenaude in prepared testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs, June 6th, 2017.
QUOTE TO NOTE
Keeping up with your customers
"We do things because we are trying to be responsive to community needs. That means you find the gaps or holes in the safety net - and fill where needed. There are so many barriers we create," Moorefield said. "I always thought it was my job to open doors. And that can take a lot of forms. I'm trying to avoid saying that we are a developer of affordable housing. We are that, but we are about creating 'home' and that is so much more than creating a house or apartment. . .Government is slower to act. Private nonprofits are more nimble. We can act more quickly, and we have a special role to play for that very reason. When there are gaps, we can fill them. It's hard to imagine, but that was the evolution" - Jim Moorefield, executive director of Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services, speaking about the organization's 25th anniversary of serving the mid-Willamette Valley, Corvallis Gazette-Times, June 10th, 2017
WORTH A LOOK
What irks consumers where you live?
Since 2011 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has received almost 1.2 million complaints consumers upset about the problems they've had with, for example, mortgages, debt collectors, banks accounts, credit cards & credit scores. Almost 45,000 complaints have come from consumers in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon & Washington. Interested in knowing what they're complaining about. Well, the Bureau's just issued a state-by-state look at who's upset where about what. It's worth a look.
WORTH A READ
A view from the ground up
21 is a lucky number if you're betting. It's even luckier if you're building equity for a community and the people who call it home. Like the 21 homes that are being built by their prospective owners, some of their soon-to-be neighbors & Catholic Housing Services on South Hill Road in Sunnyside. "We can't not be happier knowing we have reached every family's dream of having our own home, as well as building special memories thought-out the year to come," one of the moms who, at least temporarily, now is also a home builder told The Daily Sun. "Never in a million years would we have thought we would be building our home from the ground up."
Development or Devilopment? It's all in the details
Hats-off to KUOW-FM, the University of Washington's public radio station. For the past, few months a team of its reporters have been taking a closer look at what they call the Region of Boom - the booming, bustling communities of the Puget Sound region trying to gauge what's good & what's not about the almost frenetic pace of development, much the development we're seeing in cities big & small across the Northwest. The Region of Boom team isn't trying to reach any conclusions or present any definitive findings. They're just listening to the voices some development has touched in Kent & Black Diamond, Auburn & Renton, Marysville & Bremerton and sharing those insights those voices share. It's not always popular to praise the media, but in this instance, it most certainly is. To see why, visit KUOW's Region of Boom archive.
WORTH A LISTEN
