Evansville, IN – As a result of CAJE’s 2010 Nehemiah Action, where 1,200 people were present, the Mayor of Evansville pledged to fund an Affordable Housing Trust Fund in the amount of $550,000 in 2010, at least $500,000 in 2011, and $1million each year following through a dedicated revenue source. Affordable Housing Trust Funds, once capitalized, are designed to provide communities with funds to build, preserve, and rehabilitate housing that are affordable for extremely and very low income households. By the end of 2010, twenty three low-income homes had been built.
