Community Development and South Texas Affordable Housing Initiative
The Macedonia CDC, working as lead agency in partnership with F.R.E.E.D.O.M. and Freddie Mac and in cooperation with selected churches, developers and development agencies and organizations, will create new affordable housing stock for low income, immigrant and minority communities and peoples in TDAs.
This initiative’s clear objective is to build and re-build affordable and mixed income communities for low income, immigrant and minority families and to build capacity in organizations that provide components of the housing continuum to that segment of the population. This process is outlined and supported by the following affordable housing continuum: 1) Home Ownership Education and Counseling, 2) Financial Self-Sufficiency Training, 3) Community Organization and Collaboration, 4) Community and Neighborhood Planning, 5) Housing Development and Marketing, and 5) Home Owner Retention Programs. These segments operate together to facilitate a fluid and comprehensive process of community re-development in Targeted Delivery Areas (TDA), which strengthens the communities involved and defines this initiative’s success.
