Making poor housing conditions healthier

"As a physician, a father, and a grandfather, I cannot overstate how proud I am of the fact that nearly one million young children no longer face the disastrous developmental impacts of lead in their day to day lives from these efforts." Secretary Ben Carson https://www.observertoday.com/opinion/commentary/2020/10/making-poor-housing-conditions-healthier/

During my time as a pediatric neurosurgeon, I saw firsthand the importance of a healthy place to call home for the physical and mental wellbeing of a family. It always pained me to send a young child home from the hospital when I knew they were not returning to a healthy home. That’s why I […]

The Gary Housing Authority’s EnVision Center in Indiana recently hosted the first in-person job fair in the area since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic with Indiana’s WorkOne organization. Approximately 15 employers were onsite collecting applications and providing hiring information to more than 100 attendees. Each employer station was socially distanced and equipped with plastic guards for safe interaction. Masks and gloves were also available to attendees.
.
“It was so great to see so many partners and employers gathering safely to assist our residents in securing viable employment. Providing housing is only part of the narrative. Delivering services that improve their quality of life is part of our charge as well.” Gary Housing Authority Executive Director Julian Marsh.
.
Two more job fairs are scheduled for October 21 and 28. For more information, visit https://garyhousing.org/.

Humans of HUD: Gary Hugley

After Gary’s mother passed away, he took on the responsibility of providing for his younger siblings. Through the local housing authority’s Section 3 program and lots of persistence, he was able to find employment to help put him on the path to self-sufficiency. This week, Secretary Ben Carson announced the revised Section 3 rule. The final rule will help bring economic opportunities to HUD-assisted families through sustainable jobs while reducing the regulatory barriers on the communities who receive funds https://www.hud.gov/press/press_releases_media_advisories/HUD_No_20_159. #HumansofHUD

Yesterday in Chicago, Midwest Regional Administrator Joe Galvan joined Mayor Lori Lightfoot and city officials to celebrate the grand opening of Montclare Senior Residences in Calumet Heights. The 134-unit mixed-income building will provide affordable housing for independent seniors 62 and older on the city’s far South Side.
.
This project is a collaborative effort between the Federal Housing Administration’s Section 221(d)(4) loan, a project-based Section 8 voucher contract between HUD and the Chicago Housing Authority, and additional financing from several partners. Of the 134 units, 104 will be set aside for low and very low-income households earning no more than 60% of the area median income. Thirty-four units will be reserved for tenants with a Section 8 rental assistance voucher, 21 for residents referred by the Statewide Referral Network and 30 units will be market-rate apartments.
.
“While HUD is leading the fight to ensure decent, safe, and affordable housing for all Americans, we look forward to continuing to work alongside partners so that our common vision is a lived reality for all who call this great nation home.” Regional Administrator, Joe Galvan

FHA Extends Foreclosure and Eviction Moratorium for Homeowners Through Year End | HUD.gov / U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

Today, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced the third extension of its foreclosure and eviction moratorium for homeowners with FHA-insured single-family mortgages through the end of the year. The extension provides an additional four months of housing security to homeowners, as they work to recover financially from the adverse impacts of the pandemic.

“For so many first-time homebuyers and others who relied on FHA insurance to achieve homeownership, this extension provides an additional measure of peace-of-mind and security, along with the fact that we do not require a lump sum payment at the end of any forbearance period. Right now, it’s important that those affected by COVID-19 focus on the immediate priorities of regaining their financial footing, without the additional stress of dealing with a foreclosure action.” FHA Commissioner Dana Wade

What can you do if SunTrust Now Truist and an illegal Judge refuses to give you the ACT 91 Notice to save your property from foreclosure. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau works for the Lender and not the people. This was a case of Mortgage fraud and the Lender has been trying to take my property for a decade.

Just thought ya'll should know that someone is scamming people on messenger under the CDBG name, claiming to offer people 100,000 in assistance to pay the shipping and clearance fees. So you may want to let the public be aware of this! The person does not have a page but does have messenger under the name Torie Johnson.
