What's the point of shared-equity homeownership in weak market areas? [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001twoER0Ferr-5__xTDIXeMb_hyr_bHxdM9gb4nAijG8VHenj0e1CjKMRMdNDaSFUwZoBlVpLa0mboA2gEg88GcGalo5QHzsV2erj3HXoweh9D03abSFN4g6yk45zEjCWKSqfwm_6pYuTBidUW5ZKuJBz4ir8FkyMH]
In an appreciating or expensive neighborhood, the value of creating  permanently
  affordable housing through shared-equity homeownership is  easy to grasp: it preserves
ongoing access to opportunity for those of  modest means. But why would such programs
make sense in disinvested  neighborhoods or weak markets where housing costs aren't
soaring? See the latest Answer column for five reasons why.  [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001twoER0Ferr-5__xTDIXeMb_hyr_bHxdM9gb4nAijG8VHenj0e1CjKMRMdNDaSFUwZoBlVpLa0mboA2gEg88GcGalo5QHzsV2erj3HXoweh9D03abSFN4g6yk45zEjCWKSqfwm_6pYuTBidUW5ZKuJBz4ir8FkyMH]

Community-based groups all realize that good schools are an essential part of  revitalizing
neighborhoods and helping the kids and families within  them. For some this has
meant getting involved in improving or supporting  or augmenting their existing
public school systems in a variety of ways. For many other community groups recently
though, addressing education  has meant supporting and often organizing and running
their own charter schools, as the only way that a neighborhood felt it could have
enough control to really make a difference. More [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001twoER0Ferr9nphMCrzeuAIj839E5EcQnFMyAtMe-wxDHqx9PVVWXjIXTig6JPUh1OTHvv9m3ziKJDz4fQyYj4BWl-32CqH-wo0KBG2xaRs4PuCAL-Cmvn7-JFvLq7QAJaDtOEChe67cr4mBEc0Cw46HsA4j6DyJt]

Americans do seem more skeptical about homeownership's automatic  ticket to the
American Dream and they don't appear to be more welcoming of  rental housing, renters,
or government subsidies dedicated to  non-owners. It will be interesting to see
whether and how such attitudes  continue to evolve and whether that will signal
any policies shifts in  the future. I'm afraid I'm not as confident in the American
public's  embrace of renting and renters as those who conducted the survey. More

I get nervous when people start talking about community development  needing larger
economies of scale. I understand that more units can make  a tax credit housing
project proforma work better, but bigger is not  always better. Not that I think
  increasing scale is immediately and  always wrong, but I think we need to be careful
about pushing demands  for scale beyond what is cognitively and socially sustainable.

We know that when people have the tools and knowledge they need to be  responsible
borrowers, they set themselves on a path to a better  financial future. It's not
  just paying the bills, but it's what that  financial stability provides-the opportunity
to save for special  occasions, to invest in education or buy a home. It's about
  a whole  community of people living and working and creating strong local  economies
that attract businesses that bring jobs and continued  prosperity. More [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001twoER0Ferr_GDAwwmDnkhdNpVgDoqJE9gycFuD67FNkAFmh1cJmRWHHZM2Wk6NtqBoUNsEfVvPHngXF_XHvLOxgX7nlb7gVL4laX-HZiLxS8CDd53XYZ2TUoZHdrlt-49nVJaBD5XZkoAuriLQY5z3IFhnBrdfVoor9qjBJsuqkw-FbAjr1TB2G3G1ESiPGE]

Over the next two and a half years, HUD will consolidate its field  employees, who
currently work in 50 offices, down to 10 nationwide, with  plans to offer the 900
affected employees opportunities to continue  working for HUD. "The current organizational
model for HUD is not sustainable from a  financial and a service delivery point
of view," said Maurice Jones,  HUD's Deputy Secretary. "We're in a different budget
environment and  we're at a point where we must make some extremely tough choices."

What You Said:
Eva Wingren on Scale-up? Not So Fast [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001twoER0Ferr_NwIl0zPtVAPjbgfQvbqFBuTXvYRTCnCOUv3rC6jiMJMmpkZ7hClOXoo7YaQPVfFHiOeXCsexyzQkUf8ZEUzLmau_NWiZmG5cex6yTmZOdHPrP7t-EgLITfiKTJlfWl26i5uEJPgKphsIaRB6yzI2K]
"Speaking from the perspective of a large nonprofit who does seek to take advantage
of economies of scale, I will say that it only works by having lots of people in
  different places having the kind of meaningful local relationships you describe,
supported by an organizational infrastructure that consolidates back office tasks
like accounting and IT so that people in the field have more time to build those
  interpersonal connections. It's been a while since my undergraduate anthropology
classes, but doesn't Dunbar's number apply primarily to hunter-gatherer societies?
As we started to specialize more, we were able to replace social relationships with
specialized tasks, and money to signify the value of our work. We were able to be
more insulated from economic shocks, because the goods we needed could come from
  outside our social circle. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think that scale
and close social relationships are necessarily opposing forces when it comes to
community development."
