  • The Alcott Place Controversy and The Misrepresentations of the Enterprise Foundation: “ The elderly residents of Alcott Place have a special relationship with the neighborhood kids, who know that Alcott's door is always open if they need help with their homework, an extra pair of winter mittens, or just a sympathetic ear. Concerned and active members of the local community, Alcott's residents regularly collect small items of clothing and school supplies for the children, host picnics, and take part in drug and crime watches." WHY “ Growing old often means growing poorer and more vulnerable. Finding safe, affordable, and decent housing is particularly difficult for the elderly.“ WHAT “ Formerly the Louisa May Alcott Elementary School, this historic building in Baltimore City’s Lower Park Heights community was converted in 1990 to 44 quality, affordable apartments. Using Historic Tax Credits as well as Low Income Housing Tax Credits, the classrooms of this local landmark were converted into one-bedroom, one bath dwellings. The school’s original main entrance opened to a hallway that is now a large, bright community room for residents.” “ In addition, the wide hardwood hallways are now used as activity boards for the residents. After standing vacant for 20 years, Alcott Place now provides safe, comfortable, well-maintained homes. As important, the school’s new life is providing stability to this very poor neighborhood.” WHO “ Alcott Place serves low-income, elderly and disabled residents who pay no more than 30 percent of their income for rent.” PARTNERS “ Alcott Place was developed by Betty Jean Murphy and Struever Brothers, Eccles and Rouse, Inc., two for-profit developers that have been developing residential and commercial properties in the city of Baltimore for over 20 years.” “ ESIC has provided equity to a total of seven tax credit properties developed by Struever Brothers. Equity invested in Alcott Place by ESIC’s Maryland Housing Equity Fund amounted to approximately 41 percent of total …” PRINTED IN THE FEDERAL POLICIES ILLUSTRATED (July 30, 2003)
