Pasadena OKs outline for low-income housing — Program is part of the city’s five-year plan, reported by the Houston Chronicle:
The Pasadena Housing Agency’s latest five-year plan includes a proposal to help low-income renters become home owners.
To be funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the home ownership assistance program has not yet been set up in Pasadena, Planning Director Tim Tietjens said.
The updated five-year plan, much of which is similar to the agency’s previous housing plans, sets goals and policies for administering HUD funding, Tietjens said.
Pasadena has 1,056 families that receive HUD rental assistance through a program known as Section 8, said Jolenta Court, the city’s housing administrator. In addition, 1,700 families are on the Section 8 waiting list, which is now closed, she said.
Pasadena continues to grow. We are the second largest city in the area (second only to Houston itself) and currently have thousands of housing units (houses, apartments, condos, etc.) under construction.
Welcome to my world.
