  102. 102. What is the Ideal Alabama In Terms of Affordable Housing?• “we have a cohesive program policies around housing, trust fund that will identify affordable housing in Alabama. identifying the gaps especially with the elderly. they have a safe place to live. transcends across the state and we have eradicated the substandard housing.”• “would have an affordable housing clearinghouse that included wrap around services.”• “any family that wanted to own their home could approach a community based organization that could help them from beginning to end. they will realize the dream of homeownership. wouldn’t have to go through layer after layer.”• “development of smaller affordable housing properties in rural areas that are not serviced by anyone right now.”
  103. 103. OBSTACLES TO THE IDEAL ALABAMA• LACK OF RESOURCES• LACK OF POLITICAL WILL• LACK OF HOUSING POLICY; HOUSING TRUST FUND BILL GETTING PASSED• OBTAINING CLEAR TITLES• LAND ACQUISITION-AIR PROPERTY• LACK OF A COHESIVE PLAN• NEED FOR MORE PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS WITH “ON THE GROUND” ORGANIZATIONS
  104. 104. CONCLUSIONS &RECOMMENDATIONS
  105. 105. CONCLUSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS• MANY AREAS WITHIN THE ALABAMA NETWORK WOULD CONSTITUTE “UNDERSERVED”• ALABAMA IS STRUGGLING SOCIO ECONOMICALLY AND ALL OF THE CDCS SEE OPPORTUNITIES FOR HOW THEY CAN INCREASE THEIR CAPACITY AND THUS EXPAND THEIR SERVICES TO THEIR CLIENTS. GIVEN THE SHRINKING RESOURCE AVAILABILITY AND THE TREMENDOUS ALABAMA CDC STRENGTH, ESTABLISHING A STRATEGIC COLLABORATIVE THAT INCLUDES THE ALABAMA NEIGHBORWORKS NETWORK AS WELL AS THE OTHER CDCS WOULD HELP EXPEDITE AND STRENGTHEN ANY INITIATIVE AROUND IMPROVING THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING SCARCITY• RURAL AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS AN AREA THAT REQUIRES A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF ATTENTION. LEVERAGE NEIGHBORWORKS NETWORK INTELLIGENCE FROM OTHER STATES COULD BE ONE OF MANY WAYS TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM• ORGANIZING A STATE MEETING WITH PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND THE KEY INTERMEDIARIES AND FOUNDATIONS IN ALABAMA WOULD HELP DRIVE A STATE AGENDA AROUND AFFORDABLE HOUSING. SUCH AN EFFORT MAY ALSO AID IN THE PASSING OF SOME HOUSING POLICY THAT WOULD IMPROVE CURRENT UNCONSCIONABLE LIVING CONDITIONS MANY ALABAMANIANS ARE EXPERIENCING
  106. 106. CONCLUSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS• FAHE’S BACK OFFICE SERVICES WOULD BE A GREAT ASSET TO ALABAMA ESPECIALLY GIVEN SOME OF THE CHALLENGES AROUND CLEAR TITLE AND LENDING THAT WERE EXPRESSED BY PRACTITIONERS• ESTABLISHING AN ALABAMA COLLABORATIVE WOULD BENEFIT THE STATE AND CURRENT CHALLENGES OF THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING. WHILE ALL PARTIES SEEM OPEN TO AN COLLABORATIVE IT IS CLEAR THAT IN ORDER FOR SUCH AN COLLABORATIVE TO BE EFFECTIVE CLEAR TERMS NEED TO BE LAID OUT. THE COLLABORATIVE MUST INCLUDE MOUS AND ENSURE THAT THE ARRANGEMENT IS NOT ONLY BENEFICIAL TO THE STATE BUT THAT COLLABORATIVE PARTIES ARE ABLE TO LEVERAGE THEIR ORGANIZIATIONAL STRENGTHS WITHOUT FEELING LIKE THEY ARE “GIVING AWAY THEIR CLIENTS TO A COMPETITOR”• BEYOND THE AGREEMENT THE COLLABORATIVE SHOULD HAVE A DOCUMENT DETAILING HOW THE COLLECTIVE GROUP WILL WORK TOGETHER. A GOOD INFORMATION SHARING MODEL TO CONSIDER IS FAHE’S CAUCAUSES WHICH AFFORDS MEMBERS TO ROUTINELY SHARE INFORMATION AND LEVERAGE EACH OTHER’S CAPACITY TO MAKE AN
  107. 107. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS• OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVING THE AFFORDABILITY SCARCITY WOULD BE – COMMUNITY LAND TRUSTS-SOME INDIVIDUALS ARE MEMBERS OF OR IN CONVERSATION WITH THE NATIONAL COMMUNITY LAND TRUST COLLABORATIVE – LAND BANKING
