Rummaging through the various links, it seems that Fannie Mae (a private corporation trading in what’s sometimes, but recently-not-so-much, called “collateralized debt obligations") has a modest (very modest) “Challenge” program for funding innovations in the low income housing market. An early recipient of Challenge funds is the Florida Housing Coalition, a tax-exempt not-for-profit dedicated to providing low-interest loans and tech support to help low income households with home ownership and maintenance. The word “cohousing” appears nowhere on any Coalition site or material I can locate. Why “cohousing” has popped up in this context, I do not know … but I can’t understand why the word “sustainable” gets so much use, either. If I had to guess, it would be that “entrepreneurial cohousing” is developer-sponsored cohousing. But never mind all that, here’s the good news: I just discovered that the spell-checker dictionary embedded in my OS now recognizes the word “cohousing”, and has ceased auto-correcting to “choosing”. So we’re now in the major leagues for sure!
