CSH: The Next Generation of Supportive Housing in New York State (and NYC!)

From our friend Kristin Miller of CSH

CSH "blends our experience and dedication with a practical and entrepreneurial spirit. We uncover ways to move forward even in the most complex environments, so our partners can achieve stability, strength and success for the most vulnerable people in the communities where they live."


Kristin Miller update:

Kristin Miller of CSH

"Several new Requests for Proposals (RFP’s) have recently been released, including the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI) and NYC 15/15 supportive housing program, offering new opportunities for supportive housing development across the state. In the coming weeks CSH will be releasing a resource guide to assist nonprofit supportive housing developers. 

There are 1200 units in ESSHI included in this next round as a sub-set to this larger world of supportive housing. The OPWDD segment and ESSHI funds will be a smaller slice of the units. That said – it is indeed a new and ground breaking housing development resource for the OPWDD population.

The resource guide includes key activities, participants and risk considerations at each step in the development process, and helpful tools for discussions with board members, staff and other key stakeholders. We'll walk you through new financing opportunities, zoning incentives, effective partnerships and how to navigate the challenges in site control. Read more about the resource guide here.

In the meantime feel free to contact our New York based loan officers:
Jen Trepinski for the five boroughs and Maygen Moore for upstate development."

Batman: Who will be Dusty's "Dark Knight" when I am gone?

Batman is The Dark Knight that protects Gotham and its citizens from vice and villainy. Batman became an urban legend, a cautionary tale that sent shivers through the city’s underworld. Unlike most superheroes, Batman does not possess ANY superpowers. Rather, he relies on his genius intellect, physical prowess, martial arts abilities, detective skills, science and technology, vast wealth, intimidation, and indomitable will.
— Batman @ Wikipedia

Batman has always been my favorite Superhero and I came across this image/poster and purchased the image from Knoll Gilbert as it resonated the biggest question that I hear from Developmentally Disabled parents:

Who will take care of my child when I am gone? 

Batman overseeing Dustin Sweeney and his friends...

Batman overseeing Dustin Sweeney and his friends...

I had a tiny cancer scare after a recent colonoscopy, so this question really resonated with me for 3-4 days. Everything is fine now. 

Unfortunately, I don't have the answer today, and I want people to understand that being a "Community Developer" is much more important to me than the bricks and mortar of being a "Housing Developer".

Houses are simple. Communities are complicated. 

I think about these questions everyday, and we always seek support, ideas, and questions from the Developmentally Disabled community.

30 New Affordable Housing Units in Westchester County

VIA EMAIL:

"As marketing consultant for Westchester County, I’m drawing your attention to approximately 30 new affordable housing opportunities available in Bedford, Buchanan, Cortlandt, Harrison, Lewisboro, Mount Pleasant, North Castle, Pelham Manor, Pound Ridge. Somers and Yorktown and asking for your help in getting the word out. These are unique opportunities for qualified households to buy condominiums and single family homes at a below market price.  These are properties purchased by the County of Westchester or Housing Action Council at market prices and are being resold at affordable prices, i.e., at prices affordable to households at or below 80% of the median income of Westchester County.  The maximum households incomes are:  $60,400 for a single person, $69,000 for a two person household, $77,650 for a three person household and $86,250 for a four person household. 

I have attached a flyer and a listing of the properties. In addition, I have attached a flyer on two single family homes under construction in Cortlandt which we are also marketing. Please alert your colleagues, friends and relatives know of these opportunities.  Application must be submitted by April."
