This morning, an opinion piece by Navigate CEO, Lisa McCarroll, was released on MorningConsult.com. In the op-ed titled, “Addressing America’s Complex Housing Crisis Requires Collaborative Solutions,” McCarroll references the “Clean Up Our Neighborhoods Act of 2019” that was introduced by Congress earlier this month. This is a bipartisan bill that would authorize the Secretary of HUD to make grants to states in order to eliminate blight and assist in neighborhood revitalization.

“These grants will make a significant difference. However, we need a broader collaborative approach involving the public and private sector”.

McCarroll mentioned how Navigate Affordable Housing Partners is taking a neighborhood-specific approach towards accomplishing revitalization. “We are committing our resources first to address blighting factors. Our actions will include removing condemned structures and offering to help maintain vacant lots,” McCarroll said regarding Navigate’s exemplary approach in restoring a historic community in the Birmingham area.

“Leveraging our collective strength, and with the support of policymakers committed to revitalizing America’s neighborhoods with safe, affordable housing, we can find long-term solutions for communities in need.”
