Affordable Housing Plan for Houston’s Third Ward

Houston’s Third Ward is a historically black neighborhood that was once a booming epicenter for African-American culture and business. However, since the 1960s the neighborhood has suffered from forces of disinvestment and neglect. Many businesses have closed and homes have been boarded up; however, in recent times, the low cost of property and proximity to Downtown has made the Third Ward more attractive to new residents. Many longtime renters and property owners have been displaced from the neighborhood while condo and townhouse development has rapidly increased. CCPPI has received funding from Midtown Redevelopment Authority to create an Affordable Housing Plan for the Third Ward to ensure that current residents are able to remain in their neighborhoods and that the community remains affordable.
