Letter: CMHA deserves credit for adjusting to times (Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority)

Date Published:

From the Columbus Dispatch:

I was pleased to read last Sunday’s Dispatch article “Housing authority acting like developer” about the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority. Having worked with a dozen or more public-housing authorities in Ohio and elsewhere in the past 45 years, I feel the need to help readers more fully understand the unique work of CMHA.

First, today’s public-housing authorities must be entrepreneurial to survive. CMHA long ago understood that federally appropriated operating subsidies are insufficient and pursued new models for development and economic stability. This includes using tax credits to leverage private capital to stretch its limited public resources.

Read the letter to the Columbus Dispatch "CMHA deserves credit for adjusting to times," featuring the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority.
