Northwest HUD Lines
New leader, long-time friend
On Thursday, September 14th the U.S. Senate confirmed President Trump's nomination of Pamela Hughes Patenaude as HUD's new Deputy Secretary. She is no stranger to housing issues or to HUD. Her mother & father, she recalled in her testimony to Congress, "created & ran a successful homebuilding business in New Hampshire." After graduating from St. Anselm College, she went to Washington D.C. for an internship - with HUD. In the 35 years since she has held a number of leadership positions at HUD, most recently as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning & Development during the Administration of President George W. Bush. As Deputy Secretary, Ms. Patenaude will lead the Department's Disaster Management Group & will play a primary leadership and operational role in coordinating the long-term recovery efforts of 16 program and support offices within HUD. "At this moment when so many of our citizens are suffering, Pam will bring strong leadership when we need her most," said HUD Secretary Carson. "Pam's extensive housing and community development experience will be invaluable as we embark upon the long road to recovery for communities hard-hit by disaster and I'm grateful the Senate confirmed her nomination." We join our colleagues across the country in welcome her home.

THE DISASTER NEXT TIME
HUD hurricane - and natural disaster - FAQs
Alaska, Idaho, Oregon & Washington have had the good fortune to not be directly affected by Harvey, Irma and Maria. Our hearts go out to those who have. We thank our lucky stars, but realize that one day our luck is bound to turn. None of us knows when or where disaster will strike which, of course, means it's best to always be prepared for when it does. In response to the Terrible Trio that recently have made life miserable for so many, HUD has prepared an on-line library of materials about who does what - and why - in responding to Presidentially-declared major disasters. If the best time to fix a leak when the sun is shining, the best time to prepare for responding to a natural disaster is ALWAYS. Want to get started?

Cornelius, Oregon just broke ground for a brand new library. But it's a whole lot more than just a dusty ol' pile of books. Read why.
Block grants in Indian Country
Just as cities & counties like HUD's Community Development Block Grant program, Tribes & Native Villages like the Indian Community Development Block Grant program. The reason's simple. Both programs afford their grantees a great deal of flexibility in deciding how the funds can be spent to meet their housing & community development needs. You see that flexibility at work in the most recent round of ICDBG funds competitively awarded by HUD. Twenty-three of this year's 77 winners are from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon & Washington. All told, they won $10.7 million this year. Some winners will use the funds for community-wide mold remediation & prevention. Others will make their older housing stock more energy-efficient Still others will renovate existing or build new community & senior centers. In a 2015 survey, reports KLCC-FM, some 70 percent of the residents of the reservation of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde in Oregon said drug abuse was their most serious public safety concern. The Grand Ronde already had doubled its behavioral health center in 2006. The latest ICDBG award will allow it to expand its treatment capacity. In Anchorage, Alaska, Cook Inlet Tribal Housing has used ICDBG funds to upgrade housing in the once-distressed Mountain View neighborhood, helping to transform it into one pf the most vibrant, diverse neighborhoods in the country. Now reports Alaska Public Radio, it wants to use its latest ICDBG award to try to do the same." And, in Washington state, the Upper Skagit Tribe will use its award to extend water & sewer lines to support the development of a new affordable housing subdivision. Simply put, what makes the ICDBG program so popular is also what makes it work - the flexibility it provides to meet local needs, address local priorities.
AND THE WINNERS ARE. . .
The multi-family industry picks its favorites
According to Affordable Housing Finance magazine, it's time for a few of our partners to stand-up & take a much deserved bow. Why? Because the magazine's 2017 readers' choice awards have named the Seattle, Washington Housing Authority's Raven Terrace as the year's best public housing redevelopment project, the Northwest Housing Alternatives' Hawthorne East Apartments in Portland, Oregon the year's best preservation project & the Low Income Housing Institute's Marion West, also in Seattle, the year's best mixed-use project. Congratulations on work very, very, VERY well done!
BY THE NUMBERS
The dollars & sense of Housing First
By now the Housing First approach to serving the homeless is widely-accepted especially in Alaska & the Northwest which, so far, has seen Housing First complexes open or planned in Seattle then Anchorage then Fairbanks then Juneau & soon in Boise, Everett & Lane County, Oregon. But every time Housing First or "low barrier" housing has been proposed, it's faced the same question - "Why," some ask, "should my tax dollars go to put a roof over the head of a homeless guy so that he can be warm, dry every night he spends drinking himself to death?" Because, Housing First proponents respond, "you'll likely spend more tax dollars if you don't." In a recent TedxTalks in Sun Valley, Idaho, Vanessa Fry, the assistant director at Boise State University's Idaho Policy Institute, walked us through the numbers. Her numbers tell the tale.

Advancing Native American homeownership
Since its inception, HUD's Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program has helped some 1,900 Native American families in Washington State purchase a home and, in so doing, injected more than $400 million in "homeownership capital" into the state's economy while helping those families both build up their economic assets and put down even deeper roots in the communities they call home. On October 25th, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, USDA & HUD are hosting a conversation with interested real estate agents, lenders & other housing professionals about ways to "grow" our efforts to open the door to homeownership for even more Native American families in Washington State.
Incentivizing financial independence
HUD has set a November 17th deadline for eligible public housing authorities to apply for an expected 5 Jobs Plus Initiative grants of up to $3.7 million each. The Jobs Plus pilot is intended to "develop locally-based, job-driven approaches to increase earnings & advance employment outcomes through work readiness, employer linkages, job placement, educational advancement, technology skills, &d financial literacy." It does so by "incentivizing and enabling employment through earned income disregards for working families, and a set of services designed to support work including employer linkages, job placement and counseling, educational advancement, & financial counseling." Housing authorities that won Jobs Plus funds in 2014, 2015 or 2016 are not eligible for 2017 funding.

The funding "will support interventions & activities that use cross-system collaborations to improve the housing outcomes for youth and young adults and/or families experiencing homelessness.

A fiery, costly summer
The rains have returned and, if we're lucky, maybe the wildland fires are dying down, at least for now. Long overdue, the U.S. Forest Service would probably say, now that Service had, as of September 14th, spent more than $2 billion on fire suppression making 2017 "the most expensive year on record," says Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. "At the peak of Western fire season," he & U.S. Forest Service Chief Tony Tooke recently reported, "there were three times as many uncontained large fires on the landscape as compared to the five-year average, and almost three times as many personnel assigned to fires. More than 27,000 people supported firefighting activities during peak Western fire season. The Forest Service has been at Preparedness Level 5, the highest level, for 35 days as of September 14, 2017. Approximately 2.2 million acres of National Forest system lands have burned in that time. At the peak of Western fire season, there were three times as many uncontained large fires on the landscape as compared to the five-year average, and almost three times as many personnel assigned to fires."
Smart housing, smart schools
"Children who grow up in deep poverty bring challenges to the classroom that the fanciest facility with the best-trained teacher cannot overcome. Housing instability is at the top of that list of challenges. . . When you invest in children, it's a long-term bet. "Organizations need to make such initiatives part of their core mission, or they won't have the stamina to see them through. . .We're eager to do this on a larger scale," he says. "We are dedicated to improving outcomes for parents, but emphatically so about educational outcomes for children, because we do not wish them to need our housing when they grow up." - Tacoma, Washington Housing Authority executive director Michael Mirra on efforts to promote education outcomes through housing stability in "How housing authorities can shape school outcomes," The Atlantic Monthly's CityLab, September 7, 2017.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"The homeless citizens relocated from their community deserved an outstretched hand from their elected officials instead of a hammer and a bunch of rocks. For all of this, I am sorry. . . We have a law for tent cities on the books. You need a private organization to step in and host them. I've seen it done successfully on church properties." - Spokane, Washington City Council President Ben Stuckart, "Stuckart regrets decision to use boulders to move homeless," The Spokesman Review, September 7, 2017.

A rural focus
The Washington State Housing Finance Commission's Kim Herman has done it again, this time asking Marty Miller of the Office of Rural Farmworker Housing, Kay Kassinger of the Peninsula Housing Authority, Mary Traxler of USDA Rural Development, Susan Grindle & Craig Kelly of HopeSource, Michone Preston of Habitat for Humanity Washington, Billie Heath of the Rural Community Assistance Corporation & Mario Villanueva of Partners for Rural Washington to participate in a My View conversation about the pressures & needs faced by rural housing advocates, providers & beneficiaries in rural Washington. "Some challenges in rural housing are not unique," Kim writes, "high infrastructure costs, loss of subsidized housing, low rental vacancies and rapidly increasing construction costs. However, rural areas have other unique problems: fewer local and federal resources, lower family incomes, smaller communities and longer distances to travel." Sometimes the best way to get a fresh perspective of life in the big city is a drive in the country. Thanks to Kim & his contributors, the latest issue of My View you won't even have to fill up your tank. Enjoy.
