Making Affordable Housing in Historic Places Report Available

Preservation New Jersey has announced the publication of our report Making Affordable Housing in Historic Places:  Case Studies and Recommendations, which we prepared for them under a grant from the Department of Community Affairs in 2009. This report contains eight case studies of historic buildings around the state that were rehabilitated for low and moderate income housing by nonprofit, for profit developers or government entities.

The purpose of the study is to show the range of options available for municipalities to encourage reuse of threatened historic properties for workforce, senior or low/mod income persons. 

The report was written by Donna Ann Harris with Alexander Balloon, and interns Laura DiPasquale and Andito Lloyd providing research assistance  .Ron Emrick  former Executive Director of Preservation New Jersey conceived the project and added to the recommendations portion of the text.
