Have any of your cohousing groups been involved in getting funding for "low 
or moderate" income families by means of:

    Grants for site feasibility studies
    Grants and/or low-cost loans for land purchase
    Individual assistance to "low/moderate" income families for down            
      payments and/or mortgage payments

If so, 

     From what agencies did you get the grants/loans?

     What were the actual terms and conditions?

      Were you required to sacrifice any "cohousing values" or any design      
       desires ?

     Was it worth the hassle?

property and 
feasibility studies.)
