  • However, an element of the plan required that the CHA concentrate all of its existing budgetary resources on the renovation of its housing stock. Public housing residents had lived in isolation for so long, that additional funding was required to assist them with quality of life improvements and encourage their self sufficiency.
  • The Chicago Housing Authority, as a municipal corporation, relied almost exclusively on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for funding. This limited scope and approach to public funding restricted potential funding sources and ultimately would lead to diminished returns over time. Alternative funding sources with equivalent dollar values were not considered or solicited, .e. g, in kind contributions of goods or services, voluntary donations, donor campaigns
  • The CHA fostered multiple Community Based Partnerships which increased supportive service availability for drug treatment, after school, substance abuse treatment, and independent senior living programming for public housing residents.
  • CHA residents find their new neighborhoods still have the same, welcome traditions- like holiday gift baskets and corporate sponsors.
  • North Town Village is one of CHA's new communities. It is part of the HOPE VI community redevelopment plan for Cabrini-Green.
  • The renovation of Soldiers Field presented a unique opportunity for the CHA. As the sky boxes were deconstructed, the Chicago Bears arranged to donate the gently used appliances, seating and televisions to the CHA. The CHA was able to improve the community rooms in many of its Senior buildings with this corporate contribution. What was deemed inappropriate for the seniors use was auctioned to generate additional revenue.

  • The Sprint Foundation joined with KaBoom! and CHA to provide recreational opportunities by building a new playground.
  • The MacArthur Foundation, a national leader in the philanthropic community, chose to create a special funding initiative to support the CHA’s efforts to improve housing conditions in Chicago’s public housing communities. Working with the national nonprofit organization, KaBoom!, the CHA was able to construct playgrounds in six communities through the efforts of more than 1,200 volunteers and numerous corporate sponsors, like Sprint, Home Depot, the Chicago White Sox, Jewel-Osco, and U.S. Bancorp-PiperJaffery. The Chicago Bears Organization annually supports the CHA’s holiday initiatives through charitable contributions to make children’s Christmas holidays special.
  • A combined approach of technological innovation and recognition of the national significance of affordable housing options resulted in the CHA’s receiving more than $1 million from the MacArthur Foundation and nearly $900,000 from the U.S. Department of Commerce to expand its tech infrastructure and make housing resource information available electronically to its underserved population of public housing residents. The result, CHASystems@Work’s -Relocation Suite, is a series several web-enabled applications, i.e. tenant Relocation Tracking System, Housing Offer Process & Bed Room Simulation and theRightMovesNet.net.

  • From 2000-2002, the CHA’s Departments of Resource Development and Grant Administration succeeded in securing alternative funding totaling over $40 million. Approximately 10% of the secured funding addressed organizational needs in the area of information technology services.

  • The Art of Resource Development Strategic Sourcing,Partnership Development, and Issues Marketing
  • Paradigm Shift 1. In tough economic times, a different perspective is needed. 2. An agency’s annual budget details allocated cost for projected expenditures. 3. If we know the bottom line and the potential shortfall, then we how much revenue is needed. 4. The paradigm shifts from trying to generate revenue to developing alternative resources. 5. The strategy is to apply equivalent dollar value in place of actual revenue, and then diversify development.1.
  • Historical PerspectiveOn January 6, 2000, after many years of poormanagement and benign neglect, the ChicagoHousing Authority submitted a ten‑year strategicplan to the U.S. Department of Housing and UrbanDevelopment outlining major program changes,policy directions, and organizational initiativesrequired to transform Chicagos public housingsystem.The Plan for Transformation, approved by HUD onFebruary 6, 2000, outlined a strategy forrebuilding Chicago’s distressed public housingcommunities placing into motion a vision forchange.
  • CHA’s Plan for Transformation 2000 - 2005 The Plan for Transformation incorporatedthe following core commitments: $1.5 billion to create, 25.000 new or rehabbed housing units, enough for those residents who were lease‑compliant as of 10/1/99. Creation of affordable housing developments that incorporated attractive, mixed‑income communities. Redesigning neighborhoods so children, families and economic opportunities could flourish ‑ and gangs and drugs crumble. Assuring that CHA residents received access to essential supportive services Reducing duplicative administrative costs.
  • Recognize Sourcing OpportunityThe CHA’s Plan for Transformationrequired the creation of an aggressiveresource development strategy.

  • Consider the Environment  Review the various funding conditions, cycles, sources, trends and mechanisms available, then consider their potential impact as you design your resource development strategy.  Conduct an annual needs assessment to determine funding gaps related to your organization’s strategic plan.  Analyze the funding mechanisms, e.g. corporate contributions, public/private funding requests, voluntary service hours, donor events/campaigns, social enterprises, etc. then estimate percentages to optimize and diversify the development strategy.
  • Consider the Environment  From the Gap Analysis, create fundable projects and strategically align them with issue areas and funding mechanisms.  Develop a creditable approach for sourcing: e.g. social investment, strategic alliances, public awareness campaign, improved good will, stakeholder engagement, cost/ benefit analysis, or innovation.  Source projects.
  • Define the StrategyA. Public/Private PartnershipsB. Corporate Solicitation/ValuationC. Volunteer Management
