   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.

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.
