Hi Everyone,

There was a suggestion (ok, I make it) in one of the workshops at last spring’s 
Cohousing Conference in Portland, OR, that the movement could benefit from 
federally guaranteed construction loans.  In much of Europe, governments give 
grants to start-up cohousing projects.  The idea was that we lobby HUD to 
establish funds to at least guarantee loans.  There would need to be some basic 
requirements to qualify for guaranteed loans ( 
<> might be able to help with that).  This would relieve 
confusion within banks about how to deal with cohousing loan requests.  What do 
people thing?  Ideas?  Downsides?  Upsides?
