March 16, 2023 CMRC Meeting Takeaways

 

 General Housing Presentation Comments

  • The Housing presentation was very informative. CMRC members expressed appreciation gaining better understanding about the Coalition for Rochester Area Housing.     
    • More info about First Homes  
    • LINK to Video recording of March 8, 2023 Housing Alliance Meeting Housing: Financial and Policy Tool Forecasting Analysis - Mary Tingerthal
  • Comments and questions from meeting attendees:
    • BIPOC lived experience: Achieving certain levels of our area's Average Medium Income (AMI) grid (slide 5 of housing presentation) often requires income earners to work multiple jobs thus impacting household's housing assistance qualification. Is there another way to take into account work/life balance? 
    • Homeownership is a key need from CERT's constituents who often pay rents higher than mortgages; but they are unable to get into homeownership for a variety reasons. 
    • What about reducing property tax for qualified BIPOC groups to assist home ownership? 
    • Islamic compliant interest-free financing resources?
    • CMRC SC can play a part in bridging communication and knowledge gap between Housing Alliance and BIPOC constituents 
    • There were also a number of general comments and questions raised  that the BIPOC co-design report has addressed as noted in the following

  • Realtors role: Page 10

  • BIPOC representation: Page 13 shows actionable items that CMRC and its cohorts can check into 
  • Who were the co-designers: Page 14.
