Do you know the difference between what is AFFORDABLE and what is PUBLIC housing?
Council of Governments recently defined affordable housing as housing that costs $2,500 per month or less. We know that cost does not accommodate the needs of those living below the poverty line.
2,600 units across 14 public housing properties have been deemed "uninhabitable" due to slum conditions, and are in danger of being privatized. Public housing is the last safety net before homelessness, and therefore, must be preserved.
Light refreshments will be served; please email Alexis McKenney at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need accommodations, transportation, and/or childcare.
