  1. affordable housing is needed for all lowincome, from 10 dollars an hour through 60.000 a year, this is LOWINCOME. cant fix affordable housing by just dealing with some lowincome

  2. I’ve been low income and lived in low income housing. What happens over the years is the buildings eventually go into disrepair and evolve into nightmare housing situations over run by disrepair, bad landlords bad elements.
    What should be done is have housing be low income for 5-7 years and let it increase to market rate over a period of time (Maybe the elderly can get a break) That would give people time and an incentive to try to do better, look for better paying jobs, education etc.
    As long as someone can live in an apt for 500-900 for life, they are not going to strive to improve their economic situation or their housing situation (the projects are prime example) of how low income housing makes a lot people settle for worst living conditions and have the lowest aspirations and be prime targets for slum lords.
