Alfredo Valdovinos and his wife, Irma, work hard harvesting lemons in Santa Paula, Calif. Until recently, the couple and their four children lived in a two-room converted garage that didn�t have a kitchen. Even for a place that small, the rent was costly for the two farmworkers. On top of that, the Valdovinos family was hard hit in the winter of 2007 when crop freezes led to work stoppages. They were earning less than half their normal income and were thinking about going back to Mexico. Instead of leaving the country, they were able to move into the Vista Hermosa Apartments, a new 24-unit housing development for farmworkers ...

AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINANCE

Developer Survey - Affordable Housing Finance
Land for new affordable housing development is tough to find. Interest rates are on the move, and the cost of development is soaring. AFFORDABLE HOUSING FINANCE magazine’s survey of developers showed that the greatest percentage of units is being targeted to families earning between 51 percent and 60 percent of the area median income (AMI). On average, developers reported that nearly 50 percent of their 2006 units are aimed at this income group. When it came to really low income targeting, an average of about 17 percent of the survey respondents’ units are targeted to families earning no more than 30 percent of AMI. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The biggest name on that list belongs to Patrick Mara , the 35-year-old consultant who earned fame two years ago by knocking off four-term at-large council member Carol Schwartz in the Republican primary. Mara, however, finished well behind Democrat-turned-Independent Michael A. Brown in the general.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How can I improve my odds of getting into graduate school for ...
I want to get a Master's in Economics in a few years, probably focusing on real estate finance and affordable housing finance. How good are my chances of getting into a good program, and what can I do to improve them? I graduated from a good but not great university (NYU) with a good but not great GPA (3.2) in a related but not directly related major (urban planning and architecture). That was in May. I have since landed a good but not great job working for the NYC Dept. of Housing. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but I have a knack for standarized testing, and expect to finish somewhere in the 90th percentile. With this ...

RVIA argued to policy makers that the lack of credit was reaching a critical stage and noted that if consumers and dealers can't borrow money to buy product, manufacturers will plunge into further financial difficulty. The Federal Reserve Board's February 6 announcement to include RV loans will stimulate new lending to RV buyers and dealers and was a significant industry victory. The government has announced that they will purchase securitized RV loans ...
