Areas of Focus

Create a Social Enterprise

Request HUD expansion of the housing choice voucher program (HCV) (with two year term limits) as a separate portfolio incorporating eminent foreclosures in the Chicago metropolitan area, to prevent homelessness and further expansion of CHA waitlists. Create a low profit limited liability company (L3C) to administer the HCV component, manage foreclosed properties for banks charging fee for service, and hire skilled, qualified Section 3 residents as maintenance workers as a consideration for Community Reinvestment Act targeted communities. Use revenue generated to fund Family Self Sufficiency Program, incorporating Sweat Equity of Section 3 workers, if applicable
