The Cuyahoga Affordable Housing Alliance (CAHA) is Monday January 5, 2015 at 1:30 pm. at US Bank Centre Building at 1350 Euclid Ave. Lower Level. It should be an interesting meeting about the state of the Community Development Organizations in Cleveland.
We have talked about the changes that have taken place over the last few years in the world of the Community Development organizations with the presentations of both UCI and Famicos at CAHA. At the January meeting, we have invited Kathy Hexter of Cleveland State University and Bryan Gillooly of Bellaire Puritas CDC and Timothy Tramble of Burton Bell Carr Development to provide a look at the work of the CDC now and in the future. How do they organize neighbors and how will they maintain access to affordable housing locally? What will the pressure to show outcomes mean and the neighborhood work necessary to clean up after the housing foreclosure crisis? We have invited City of Cleveland officials to also talk about the changes in the Ward boundaries and the effect of the cuts to Community Development Block grants.
As always we look at any troubled property in Cuyahoga County. This is the 17th year of CAHA. A monthly meeting to check in on the status of affordable housing locally. The goal is to stop the loss of affordable housing. All are invited to attend. Contact NEOCH to get on the e-mail list.
