HAPPY HOMEOWNERSHIP MONTH!
Finding a place in the new era of homeownership
"During National Homeownership Month, we recognize the many benefits of homeownership to our families, our communities, and our Nation. For generations of Americans, owning a home has been an essential element in achieving the American Dream. Homeownership is often the foundation of security and prosperity for families and communities and an enduring symbol of American freedom. This month, we recommit to ensuring that hard-working Americans enjoy a fair chance at becoming homeowners. In the years since the Great Recession, homeownership rates have dipped to historic lows. Many Americans are not confident they will ever own a home, a tragic consequence of a decade of weak economic growth, excessive regulations, and stagnant wages. Many young families are unable to achieve the independence they desire because they have difficulty saving for a down payment, overcoming regulatory burdens, or gaining access to adequate credit. These challenges are even more pronounced for minorities, whose homeownership rates remain substantially below those of their fellow Americans. I am committed to helping hard-working Americans become homeowners. As part of my Administration's plan to strengthen the middle class and the American housing market, I am working with the Congress on a pro-growth agenda of reducing rules and regulations, cutting taxes, and eliminating unnecessary government spending. These policies will unshackle our economy and create and sustain high-paying jobs so that more Americans have the resources and freedom they deserve to fulfill their American Dream." - President Donald J. Trump in a Declaration of June, 2017 as National Homeownership Month, The White House, May 31, 2017.
HUD & HOMEOWNERSHIP
Secretary Carson kicks-off National Homeownership Month
"After all we've been through, homeownership remains an American value and the cornerstone of our economy. Today, we recognize the abiding value of owning a home, and rededicate ourselves toward ensuring that every hardworking and credit-worthy American enjoys a fair chance at becoming a homeowner." - HUD Secretary Carson, June 1, 2017
Trump Administration proposes fiscal year 2018 HUD budget
"This Budget reflects this Administration's commitment to fiscal responsibility while continuing HUD's core support of our most vulnerable households. We will work very closely with Congress to support the critical work of our agency as we vigorously pursue new approaches to help work-eligible households achieve self-sufficiency." - HUD Secretary Ben Carson, May 23, 2017. For a summary of the full budget proposed by President Trump for Federal fiscal year 2018 visit.
How would you streamline government?
On January 30th President Trump signed Executive Order 13771 "Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs," and on February 24th signed Executive Order 13777, "Enforcing Regulatory Reform Agenda." Together, they direct each Federal agency, including HUD, "to establish a Regulatory Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and identify those that may merit repeal, replacement, or modification." In the May 15th edition of The Federal Register, HUD published a notice requesting public comment "identifying existing regulations that may be outdated, ineffective, or excessively burdensome" in order, consistent with these Executive Orders, "to make the Department's regulations more effective and less burdensome in achieving HUD's mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities, and quality affordable homes for all." Comments are due June 14th, 2017. Submission information is included in The Federal Register notice.
MOVING MOVING-TO-WORK FORWARD
Expanding the opportunities for innovation
The Federal Register has announced that HUD has set a June 5th deadline to submit public comments on an Operation Notice for the Moving to Work Demonstration Expansion initiative. HUD has received statutory authority to expand the Moving to Work Demonstration project from its current 39 to 139 public housing authorities. Moving to Work status provides high-performing authorities with considerably greater opportunities for administrative flexibility & program innovation. Under the statutory authority, 50 of the 100 new Moving to Work housing authorities will have 1,000 or fewer public housing units/vouchers, 47 will have between 1001 and 6000 units of both and three will have 6001 to 27,000 units of both. At least five of the new authorities must be participating in HUD's Rental Assistance Demonstration initiative to increase private investment in the maintenance & upgrading of public housing inventories.

WINNERS AND, WELL, LOSERS

Private support for public assets
Public housing authorities & their public housing units have been around since, in some communities, the 1920's and 1930's. As publicly-owned housing, funding for their capital upkeep & upgrade have had to come, largely from public sources only, most frequently from HUD capital funding. Authorities could not seek private funds for capital to preserve their public housing inventory. No surprise, over the decades HUD & other local public funding was hard-pressed to keep-up with the capital needs of buildings & units that, with each passing year, grew older as capital funds grew more scarce. Fortunately, in 2014 HUD proposed & the Congress approved the Rental Assistance Demonstration - RAD - initiative under which an authority's units would be converted from public housing units to project-based rental voucher units, thereby eliminating the bar to private capital investment. Initially, the Congress approved the conversion of 60,000 units. A couple of years later, it increased that number to 185,000. More recently, the Congress has raised the cap to 225,000 units. RAD, simply put, is delivering on its promise - to date, it's generated more than $4 billion in public-private capital investments, leveraging $19 in private financing for every $1 in public funds. More than a dozen housing authorities in the Northwest either have completed or are in the process of converting their unit inventories under RAD, "expanding opportunity for more families," says HUD Secretary Carson, "and ensuring they have access to quality, healthy, affordable housing." With President Trump's proposal to lift the RAD cap altogether, it's anybody's guess how much more private capital can be tapped to maintain an essential public asset.
Numbers that matter
These days everyone seems mad for metrics to measure progress, project a trend, even win an argument at a sports bar. So, here's a metric or two for you. 1,497. That's the number of affordable rental apartments in Idaho, Montana, Oregon & Washington state produced or preserved by Community Frameworks, its staff & its more than 40 affiliates & partners during the 34-year tenure of Linda Hugo as executive director. Great metric, huh? Or 3,465. That's the number of homeownership units built by Community Frameworks, its affiliates & lots & lots & lots of volunteers during her tenure. Another great metric, right? Especially since they're more than just numbers or metrics. They are, instead, a legacy, a reason to celebrate, an example of work well done. When she says a final farewell to Community Frameworks at the end of this month & Deb Elzinga takes the helm, no matter where Linda's travels may take her in the Northwest, those metrics & that legacy means she, surely will come across a home, a family & a community she & her colleagues have touched during her tenure. By any measure, any metric, that's a whole lot better than a gold watch. Fare well, Ms. Hugo, fare well.
Community-driven design delivers
There's something special about architects from the Northwest & Alaska. Whenever HUD & the American Institute of Architects announces HUD Secretary's Housing & Community Development Design Awards, there's a pretty good chance one of them will be for a project in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon or Washington. That's true again this year, with El Centro de la Raza's Roberto Maestras in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood the winner for "creating community." Across the street from a light-rail station, the residents of the two-building, 112 affordable housing development are just minutes away from anywhere they want to work, go to school or have some fun in the Seattle. But the "community connection" is even closer to home, with a beautiful festival plaza where residents can mix, mingle & meet their neighbors a central feature in the design and, the jury added, serves as a "multicultural hub" for the area. Like the two other winders in Hayward, California & St. Louis, Missouri, observed HUD Secretary Carson, Plaza Roberto Maestras will "inspire designers across the nation to recognize that affordable housing can enhance the fabric of their communities by combining form with function."
AFTER THE STORM
Governor Otter's request okayed
On May 19th President Trump issued a major disaster declaration to provide Federal finance assistance "to supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides from March 6 to March 28, 2017." The seven counties affected by the President's declaration are Bonner, Boundary, Clearwater, Idaho, Kootenai, Latah, Shoshone, and Valley counties. Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance also is available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation efforts statewide in Idaho. For more information on available assistance, visit. In addition, HUD's Office of Housing Counseling has contacted HUD-approved housing counseling agencies in affected areas reminding them of a HUD resource toolkit to assist land & homeowners in their recovery activities.

"Ready, set, certify!"
Recognizing the critical role played by HUD-approved housing counselors in helping American consumers navigate the Great Recession as well as their importance in helping homeowners, homebuyers, renters & landlords to be "informed consumers" in the nation's housing market place, at the direction of the Congress in December, 2016 HUD issued final rule announcing a three-year program to require that housing counselors & housing counseling agencies providing services to consumers through HUD programs be certified. A critical component of that effort is to require that all such counselors take a test established by HUD to demonstrate their proficiency in the issues likely to confront them in serving American consumers. HUD has now published a Federal Register notice announcing that the required test will become available on August 1, 2017 and, further, that any counseling services provided through HUD programs can only be provided by a certified counselor on or after August 1st, 2020. In addition, the December rule indicated that the cost of taking said exam would be $100 on-line & $140 in a proctored setting. The more recent notice indicates that exam pricing has been reduced to, respectively, $60 & $100. For more information, visit HUD's Office of Housing Counseling.
Housing stability = academic performance
The Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington Department of Commerce have set a June 5th deadline for individual school districts or consortia of school districts to apply for Homeless Student Stability Program grants for the 2017-2018 academic year. The "over-arching" purpose of the program, created by the Legislature in 2016, is to "improve educational outcomes for homeless students" through in-school guidance support & housing stability. The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction will award grants of $125,000 "to build homeless education program capacity at school district" while the Department of Commerce will award grants of $500,00 "support Homeless Housing Partnerships between school districts and housing entities." The competitive awards are expected to be announced in July, 2017. In part, creation of the Homeless Student Stability Program was inspired by the Tacoma Housing Authority, Tacoma Schools, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation & Building Changes with housing subsidies provided by HUD at the McCarver Elementary School in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma. Thanks to a lot of kids, teachers, moms & dads, one neighborhood school's idea is now at work in neighborhoods across the state.
Wanted: capacity builders
USDA's Rural Housing Service has set a July 25th deadline for qualified intermediary organizations to apply for Rural Community Development Initiative funding through which they will "provide technical assistance and training to help nonprofit organizations and communities develop their capacity to undertake housing, community facilities or economic development projects." Applicants must have "capacity-building experience" for the projects in which they will be involved and must provide matching funds "at least equal to" the amount of their grants. Grants awarded under the competition will range from $50,000 to $500,000 and activities can include "homeownership education, minority business entrepreneurship, strategic community planning or assistance to access alternative funding sources.
Rural community building
USDA's Rural Housing Services has set a July 24th deadline local governments, non-profit organizations & Federally-recognized Tribes to apply for Community Facilities Technical Assistance Grants of up to $150,000 each. Authorized under the 2014 Farm Bill, the grants enable rural communities to hire specialized personnel, pay for feasibility studies, retain consultants to prepare financial assistance applications and identify and plan for long-term community facilities needs and, specifically, to prepare applications for USDA Community Facilities loans & grants. "Too often, rural community organizations lack the technical expertise they need to access federal dollars," said USDA Secretary Perdue. The technical assistance promotes "Increased access to federal funding will help build essential community facilities, and will allow rural areas to thrive."
LISC looks to help
The Puget Sound program of LISC - the Local Initiatives Support Corporation - has set a June 30th deadline for community development corporations in Seattle and King & Pierce counties seeking technical assistance funded by HUD's Section 4 program. LISC is focusing on assistance that promote viable economic development, affordable housing, workforce development & community health & sustainability.

Reasons to celebrate
Looking for a reason to party? Well, June is National Homeownership Month. Can there be any better reasons to celebrate? Well, of course there can. Your birthday, anniversary, graduation, Mothers' Day, July 4th, Halloween, New Year's Eve and so on and so on. But National Homeownership Month is still worth celebrating. And if you're celebrating that, celebrate FHA - the Federal Housing Administration - too. Why? Just consider a few numbers. from 1934 to present, FHA has insured 111,103 mortgages in Alaska (17,203 currently active); 266,935 mortgages in Idaho (51,937 currently active); 427,918 mortgages in Oregon (75,397 currently active);and 1,000,623 mortgages in Washington (156,526 still active). And if you multiplied those 301,073 households with active FHA mortgages by an average family size of 2.2 and then move the resulting 662,360 family members just for an instant to one place - let's call it FHAville - you'd have, just for an instant, the 24th largest city in the United States, just behind Boston and just ahead of Memphis. Now, that's a number worth celebrating!
Learning - and teaching - the lessons
"I came out of the system. I was in it for 15 years," Lee said. "I've been out 15 years now. But when you get out, you feel hopeless. You have a record. A criminal history.

WORTH A READ
First you celebrate & then it's back to work!
"At an early stage the list had 45 names" of homeless veterans in Bremerton & Kitsap County. "Many were removed after being helped, other names added as individuals were contacted or arrived in the area, and typically the number has hovered around 5 or 6. That's already a successful indicator, considering that during 2016 the county can cite 379 veterans who have been helped. But on Thursday, a day our board met with Jewell to hear an update on the effort, there wasn't a name on the list. "Zero" wasn't just a goal, at least for a day. The number on that list will change, of course. By tomorrow there may be five names. But the success story is that multiple groups in Kitsap County — cities, the county, housing authorities, Veterans Administration and other volunteer groups — are providing an answer for any veteran who needs a hand. It's a significant accomplishment, and provides a model for other communities. . .Homelessness can seem intractable sometimes in our community. The response in this targeted initiative inspires hope that it is not." –The Kitsap Sun, May 2, 2017, on the news that a coalition of volunteers & organizations in Kitsap County, Washington had become one of the first communities in Washington State to achieve "functional zero," i.e., the capacity to provide shelter to any and all homeless veterans within their jurisdiction.

Health & homelessness
When most of us get the flu bug, we go home & get under the covers, nursed back to health by our family & plenty of liquids & rest. The homeless don't have that luxury. When they're sick or injured it's just one more burden, one more risk they carry with them as they move from place searching for a sort of warm, sort of safe place to spend another night on the streets. Since October, however, Brother Francis Shelter & three men's shelters in Anchorage, Alaska have operated a respite care facility to provide the homeless with a "space," says Lisa Caldeira, "for peace and calm and healing," Alaska Public Broadcasting recently visited the facility.
