Q #46: How do you feel about affordable housing?
I think houses should be affordable. To be honest I had to really look into this topic. I didn’t know if affordable housing is Section 8. I have discovered they are different and I will be discussing Section 8 later.
Affordable housing and public housing is housing which is deemed affordable to those with a median household income or below as rated by the national government or a local government by a recognized housing affordability index.
Affordable rent is no more than 80% of the local market rent. Intermediate housing refers to homes for sale and rent, provided at a cost above social rent but below market levels subject to the affordable housing definition.
There are three types of affordable housing: subsidized, income-restricted, and vouchers. There are different applications and requirements for each.
The authority owns and operates public housing units for:
- low-income people.
- the elderly, and.
- people with disabilities.
We need more low-income housing. We need housing for our elderly that is based of their income. We also need ADA certified homes that help and assist those with disabilities.
I get frustrated when I see dilapidated houses, abandoned homes, and houses that sit vacant for years when we have so many people that are desperate for homes. We bailed out big banks for fraudulent criminal behavior when the bubble busted thus, we can make homes easier to purchase.
Once elected into office I want to learn more about affordable housing. I want to work with those interested in making housing more affordable. I don’t want to see anyone homeless here in the USA.
I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE. #VoteWisdom4Congress
