Wellington Avenue Local Development Organization <WALDO [at] ais.net> is the author of the message below but due to their not being subscribers to Cohosusing-L it was posted by the COHOUSING-L sysop (Fred). Despite their request for "direct responses" I'd like to see this topic discussed on the list. You could post to the list AND send them a copy. I have written to them encouraging them to subscribe. Fred **************** FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS ********************* Seeking information regarding the successful development of CoHousing Communities involving low-income participants, particularly in an urban context. Interested in seeking creative ways to finance mixed/low-income CoHousing, utilizing government subsidies, etc. and in discovering what is happening in other cities in this area. WALDO is a not-for-profit organization which partners with community groups in low income areas to develop real estate (residential and commercial) and to create jobs. WALDO received a CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) from the City of Chicago to explore mixed/low-income CoHousing opportunities. We are in touch with the national and Chicago-based CoHousing groups, but have found other intentional "communities" developing outside this organizational context. WALDO would appreciate direct responses to our inquiry and/or being included in conversations with others concerning mixed/low-income urban-based CoHousing developments.
