04 Feb It’s Not That Simple: Affordable Housing, Part 2 1/31/20
We received this comment from a listener after our previous program on affordable housing. Edited here for length and privacy.“I think affordable housing is a term to be used separate from workforce housing. I’m talking about real affordable housing for people who are not police officers or nurses or social workers…I’m not criticizing the show, but no one said, ‘Let’s go out and educate folks about low income housing’ …we still need to address the folks making $35k or less, they need housing too and they are not slobs.” On our last show we presented the people and the numbers that make up the affordable housing matrix. Our listener felt that we were focusing too much on what is known as “workforce housing” and not concentrating on those most in need.
