It's a whole new ballgame in 2017 - federal funds to states like Ohio will be affected. Anthony Brancatelli, Brian Cummins and the past council reps for the West 25th corridor (Rokakis-Frangos) have staged an insane property transfer for the vacant YMCA building.
Please sign the petition and let these crooks know that our economic future does not include permanent supportive homeless housing next to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the number one tourist destination in Northeast Ohio.
Emerald Alliance VIII-Detroit is a Permanent Supportive Housing Project that will serve disabled, homeless individuals. Located on the west side of Cleveland, it is currently in design phase.
Located on the former Bridgeway campus at Detroit Road and W. 83rd Street,
it will be a four story wood frame facility with living units on the first floor along with social service offices, a community room, conference rooms and kitchen. The upper floors will be all apartments. It will be approximately 45,000 square feet in total.
To qualify,applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
Applicants must meet HUD’s definition of chronic homelessness. This means the applicant is currently living in an emergency shelter, or in a place not meant for human habitation and have been continuously homeless for one year or more or had at least 4 episodes of homelessness in the past 3 years.
Applications must have a documented disability. Priority is given to applicants with mental illness, drug/alcohol dependencies, or HIV/AIDS.
Households must meet Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Income Guidelines. Full-time students are not eligible for this program.
Disability and homelessness will be verified. The maximum occupancy for each efficiency unit is one person.
Applications will be reviewed for eligibility and applicants will be asked to participate in at least two interviews. At no time during the application process will clients be guaranteed apartments until they sign a lease.
