ASCENSION TEMPORARY HOUSING DISCUSSION
The industrial boom which our area is enjoying is creating a demand for temporary furnished housing. This is an unprecedented opportunity to remove blight and renew many of our neighborhoods, especially near the manufacturing job sites.
These projects are expected to continue for >10 years. Please don’t create blight by adding trailer parks! Remove blight, renew existing properties! Build homes not blight!
Why would anyone allow more trailer parks?
Ascension Parish has tons of housing underutilized today.
Don’t use trailer parks! Use Ascension Corporate Rentals!
About the Neighborhood Preservation Companies Program
In New York, Housing and Community Renewal provides financial support for 205 not-for-profit community-based housing corporations to perform housing and community renewal activities statewide. These corporations, known as Preservation Companies, provide assistance including, but are not limited to, housing rehabilitation, home buyer counseling, tenant counseling, landlord/tenant mediation, community rehabilitation and renewal, crime watch programs, employment programs, legal assistance, and Main Street Development. A majority of Preservation Companies are also involved in the planning and development of capital projects including new construction and/or rehabilitation of older housing stock. Companies perform this work with the assistance of DHCR administrative funds and leveraged funds from the private sector and other governmental sources.
Preservation Companies are located in most areas of the state and primarily serve low- and moderate-income residents. Preservation Companies are required to serve areas where there are significant unmet housing needs for the low and moderate income population.
Community-Based Housing Organizations are making a direct impact on the quality of life in the inner cities, towns, villages, and remote rural communities of our state by providing a wide variety or services to low- and middle-income families, the elderly, and persons with special needs. Examples of services provided include, but are not limited to, developing and/or rehabilitating housing, assisting first-time home buyers, organizing tenant associations, providing tenant assistance, forming community and neighborhood watch programs, developing job training programs, youth mentoring, and organizing community activities.
