AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Promoting affordable housing and community development

 

Affordable housing is fundamental to ensuring the development of healthy, vibrant, sustainable and engaged communities. Taking a proactive approach to addressing community development, CCPPI works to address the affordable housing needs of Houston’s historic Third Ward and adjacent areas. In alignment with its growth strategy, CCPPI has concentrated initial efforts in this historic community with the goal of expanding pointed efforts into other communities across the Greater Houston Area and beyond.  To date CCPPI has assisted with various projects, including senior housing sponsored by ReWard Third Ward.  In partnership with the Midtown Redevelopment Authority (MRA), CCPPI is implementing a uniquely planned transition from what was an infill housing program to an initiative focused on community-building through the production of affordable housing in Southeast Houston.  The Affordable Housing Plan is linked to the Complete Communities initiative of the Mayor of the City of Houston and is found in the Third Ward Complete Communities Action Plan that was approved by Council Vote. Major projects underway include the Revive Emancipation! Initiative, including development of a first-of-its-kind Affordable Housing Center, the 100 Homes Project and Emancipation East and West.

Advocacy for local, regional and statewide legislation that provides greater access to affordable housing and related improvements in community conditions remain a primary focus of the work.  In addition to the independent expertise and thought leadership that the team at CCPPI uses to improve access to affordable housing, we engage in collaborative approaches to promote needed change.  Our involvement the Houston Housing Collaborative, for example, provides regular opportunties for collaboration with various public/private member entities who are also focused on improving housing conditions and options for citizens.  Interactions include local and statewide advocacy.  At the national level, our housing equity advocacy and policy impact efforts align to the efforts of the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
