Housing Task Force

 
 
 

Central Neighborhood needs secure, safe, affordable housing.

Our purpose is to support the housing stability of Central residents. Historically focused on providing grants and low interest loans to low income home owners, CANDO is working to support tenant organizing in Central in the future.

Our strategies: organizing community members around housing quality and affordability issues. Marketing housing grants and loans to community members in need.

NEXT MEETING:

At this meeting we will hear from:

-Leaders working on a documentary about Housing and History in Central Neighborhood.

- Central Staff and Board about our new partnership with Center for Energy and Environment to renew the Central Housing Loan program.

- Residents from Markley Square about their Housing Rehab projects.

-YOU!! to determine our neighborhood strategies to tackle gentrification and displacement and make sure that everyone who lives in Central has secure, safe affordable housing.
