Affordable, Sustainable Housing is Coming to Long Beach, California with Help from LISC

As inventory shortages and high costs are making Long Beach, CA nearly as unaffordable nearby Los Angeles, $4.34 million acquisition and predevelopment loan from LISC is helping the construction of a new affordable housing community to move forward and provide a range of apartments for families earning 30% AMI to 60% AMI.

To Safeguard Homes in California, Promote Affordability Through the Foreclosure Intervention Housing Preservation Program

California’s recently formed Foreclosure Intervention Housing Preservation Program (FIHPP) is poised to fund nonprofit housing groups to buy rental properties in or at risk of foreclosure and quickly convert them to long-term affordable housing. Now, FIHPP is hanging in the legislative balance. LISC’s Tahirih Zigler and Enterprise Community Partners’ Jacqueline Waggoner weigh in on the imperative of safeguarding the program to help spare many Californians from the preventable tragedies of displacement and homelessness.
