ESTABLISH WORKING GROUPS WITH PRIVATE AND PHILANTHROPIC PARTNERS
Each working group should be responsible for designing and launching the housing tool that its members have committed resources to support. For example, potential funders and developers should be engaged regarding establishment of a housing preservation fund and creating a pool to subsidize 4% LIHTC developments. The philanthropic community should be engaged with regards to funding neighborhood reinvestment planning efforts, providing enhanced services with mortgages, and providing short-term rental assistance, as in some cases, they are funding these activities already. Participation in these working groups should be limited to partners who are committing resources, which can include both financial and staff resources. This will ensure that the groups are comprised of stakeholders willing to make real contributions and make true commitments to advancing implementation. The City should establish working groups with private and philanthropic partners to jointly implement housing tools. Public-Private-Partnership Working Groups will drive implementation of recommendations that require resources from the public and private sectors.
