Greater Cincinnati Foundation Highlights Our Housing Work on Behalf of The Alms Hill Residents Association

AUGUST 29, 2018

Thanks to the Greater Cincinnati Foundation for the shout-out for our housing work on behalf of the Alms Hill residents association in its new newsletter!

Over a three year period, our housing attorneys worked to preserve the 200 units of affordable housing in this Walnut Hills landmark. We first partnered with the City of Cincinnati to file a lawsuit to get a receiver appointed to make key repairs when the property went into foreclosure. Then, we litigated to prevent HUD from ending Section 8 housing assistance to the building. Finally, we assisted the receiver in finding a preservation buyer who has pledged to maintain the property as affordable housing.

The multi-year support from GCF is key to our efforts to work with tenant and community groups to preserve and improve affordable housing. We are most appreciative of it.
