Students Celebrate Achievement in Multi-Family Property Maintenance Program, Addressing Workforce Challenges

By | Features, News, Press Releases

FORT WORTH, Texas (Apr. 24, 2024) – The Multi-Family Property Maintenance program at Tarrant County College (TCC) presented its first cohort of students with certificates of completion on Friday, April 5. The ceremony celebrated the achievements of the students and highlighted the program’s vital role in addressing workforce challenges within the housing industry.

The Multi-Family Property Maintenance (MFPM) program consists of seven continuing education courses equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed for entry-level maintenance positions in apartment communities and other multi-family properties. Recognizing the increasing difficulty in retaining maintenance professionals, Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) and TCC collaborated to create the program, providing career advancement opportunities for Fort Worth-area residents and addressing workforce needs within the multi-family housing industry.

“The success of this program is a testament to the hard work and innovation of a number of organizations and individuals,” said Mary-Margaret Lemons, President of Fort Worth Housing Solutions. “Thanks to TCC and our other community partners, we’re paving the way for success for residents, properties and the Fort Worth community as a whole.”

Chris Shelby, an FWHS resident, spearheaded the instruction of the program, bringing firsthand experience and expertise to the classroom. His journey from seeking to rejoin the workforce after a health-related hiatus to becoming a program instructor reflects the program’s commitment to fostering career growth and economic empowerment within FWHS communities and beyond.

The Fort Worth Apartment Association was a vital partner in the development and success of the course, connecting students with real-world training opportunities, potential employers, and a network of industry professionals. They also helped set up the first cohort of students for success by providing them with new utility bags filled with wrenches, pliers and other essential tools for their future careers.

The course found another key partner in RPM Living. The property management company allowed four MFPM students the opportunity for a three-day apprenticeship to provide on-the-job training over the course of the seven-week program. Each participant was placed at an FWHS site managed by RPM.

This partnership resulted in one student receiving an offer for full-time employment at an RPM Living-managed property. This student also holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from the University of Texas at Arlington, and he plans to use the knowledge he gained from the MFPM program to eventually start his own property maintenance business.

“We are very proud of the nine students who completed the Multi-Family Property Maintenance Program and overjoyed with our collaboration between Fort Worth Housing Solutions, RPM Living Property Management and TCC,” said Artrese Hartman, Director of Workforce Programs at TCC. “This program is a vital addition to our program offerings at the TCC Opportunity Center, recognizing the importance of training maintenance professionals ‘the right way’ to provide property owners a pool of potential employees for hiring to assist with maintaining their multi-family properties.”

Tuition for the first cohort of students was provided by the Barbara Holston Education Fund, an FWHS-affiliated scholarship foundation. This support ensured that students could access the course without financial barriers, further emphasizing the commitment to empowering individuals within the community. The program has now been registered with the Texas Workforce Commission to allow future students to access similar financial aid opportunities.

The partnership between TCC and FWHS underscores the importance of collaborative efforts in addressing workforce challenges and creating pathways to success for residents. By providing accessible education and training opportunities, the program not only meets the needs of the community but also strengthens the housing industry as a whole.

Moving forward, TCC and FWHS remain dedicated to expanding access to education and training opportunities that directly address the needs of the community. The MFPM program stands as a testament to their collaborative approach and commitment to building a brighter future for all.

Cowan Place Senior Living Celebrates Grand Opening

By | Features, News, Press Releases, Stop Six CNI

The mixed-income community is the first phase of Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Initiative to open.

FORT WORTH, Texas (Nov. 13, 2023) – Stop Six residents, government leaders, developers and community partners celebrated the grand opening Cowan Place Senior Living. The mixed-income community launches an exciting new phase of residential housing as part of the Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Initiative.

Cowan Place is a landmark development signaling a comprehensive transformation of one of the city’s treasured, African-American communities. Cowan Place is named for Alonzo and Sarah Cowan, two of the first landowners in the Southeast Fort Worth community and for whom the neighborhood was once named.

Former Cavile Place residents who relocated as part of the redevelopment process have the right to return to the community as new FWHS properties come online, such as Cowan Place and Hughes House, which broke ground earlier this year.

“Cowan Place Senior Living would not have been possible without true community collaboration from Stop Six and our committed partners,” said Mary-Margaret Lemons, Fort Worth Housing Solutions president. “We’re excited to welcome new and former Cavile residents to a development they can call home.”

The multiyear Choice Neighborhood effort is seeded by a $35 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant. The HUD grant will be spread across six phases of development and is expected to leverage approximately $500 million in investment for the neighborhood. In all, Fort Worth Housing Solutions will develop approximately 1,000 new units across the community.

The City of Fort Worth plans additional infrastructure improvements, including a new community hub and aquatics center. FWHS also received an additional $4 million from the federal government to assist with public infrastructure improvements.

“Cowan Place is the gateway welcoming all to Stop Six, Texas,” said Fort Worth City Councilwoman Gyna Bivens, whose district includes Stop Six. “It is a beacon of light for senior citizens who want to return to Stop Six and those who were yearning for residential amenities that would make the community more attractive for them. This community is blessed.

“When Cavile Place was demolished, Housing Solutions leaders knew they had to deliver replacement housing and they are delivering on that need in a very impressive manner as we look forward to residents who will soon call Hughes House Home.”

McCormack Baron Salazar of St. Louis, Mo., is the development partner for Cowan Place and Block Companies, of Houston and Baton Rouge, is the general contractor.

“We are a proud partner with FWHS in welcoming former Cavile Place residents to Cowan Place – the first of six phases of development that will transform the Stop Six community,” said Richard Baron, Chairman, McCormack Baron.

Babers Manor Awarded Competitive Tax Credit from TDHCA

By | News, Press Releases
Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs Announces $87.7 Million In Housing Tax Credits

FORT WORTH, Texas – The Governing Board of the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) voted on July 27 to approve awards of 2023 9% housing tax credit funds to 54 developments, including the Fort Worth Housing Solutions development Babers Manor.

“We are delighted to receive this award to aid in the funding for Babers Manor, an integral part of the Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Initiative,” Fort Worth Housing Solutions President Mary-Margaret Lemons said. “The transformation taking place in historic Stop Six is making a lasting impact on our community. Babers Manor will be a place for our residents to call home, with options for our families to thrive.”

Clarence Donald Babers (1946-2020)

Babers Manor, a pivotal project within the Stop Six CNI, is an 80-unit, mixed-income family community paying tribute to community leader Clarence Donald Babers. The development, situated between S. Hughes Ave and S. Edgewood Terrace, will comprise 51 low-income units and 29 market-rate units. Financial closure for Babers Manor is anticipated in early 2024, with construction set to commence soon after.

TDHCA has awarded $87.7 million in total for housing tax credits to help finance the development or rehabilitation of 54 rental properties offering reduced rents and increased housing options for Texans throughout the state.

Provided through the TDHCA Housing Tax Credit Program (HTC), these awards will help developers construct or rehabilitate more than 3,100 housing units and offer affordable rent to households earning up to 80% of the median family income in their respective areas.

“The HTC Program is critical to ushering in a new era of opportunity for Stop Six,” said Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens, who serves District 5 including Stop Six. “We’re so excited and proud to welcome our beloved community to Babers Manor with all services and amenities needed to succeed in a modern housing environment.

“The nation recognized Mr. Babers for leading the public housing rebuild in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina as directed by President George W. Bush. Mr. Babers worked tirelessly to ensure that those that were displaced were provided modern and safe housing. We are honored to recognize Mr. Babers in the city he called home.”

The HTC Program is one of the primary means of directing private capital toward the development and preservation of affordable rental housing for low-income households. Tax credits are awarded to eligible participants to offset a portion of their federal tax liability in exchange for the production or preservation of affordable rental housing.

Competitive Tax Credits (9%) are awarded based on a Regional Allocation Formula (RAF) with additional set asides for developments at risk of losing affordability and subsidy, developments financed through USDA, and those with nonprofit owners.

 

Hughes House Breaks Ground in Another Landmark Day for Stop Six

By | Features, News, Stop Six CNI

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 15, 2023 – The Stop Six community, along with city and governmental representatives, valued partners and civic leaders, joined Fort Worth Housing Solutions in breaking ground on Hughes House, the second mixed-income, multifamily development in the Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Initiative.

Named in honor of Robert Hughes Sr., the winningest coach in the history of boys’ high school basketball, Phase I of Hughes House will consist of a 162-unit, mixed-use, mixed-income four-story development that will rise on E. Rosedale Street, east and west of Amanda Avenue, and on a portion of the former Cavile Place public housing site.

“It’s very important that the progress we’re seeing across our community is not just in the West Side or the North Side, it is also happening in historic Stop Six, and I think this project really reflects that,” Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker said. “It is also really important to know the commitment this community has to those who came before us. And what this project in particular recognizes is the individuals who built Stop Six get to return to Stop Six.”

Hughes House is part of the landmark Stop Six Choice Neighborhood effort that launched in 2020 when the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded FWHS and the City of Fort Worth a $35 million Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant. Former Cavile Place residents who relocated as part of the redevelopment process have the right to return to the community as new FWHS properties come online, such as Cowan Place, which is scheduled to open later this year.

“The community has always had a strong voice in what we wanted this to become, and we appreciate your input, we want your input and will continue to ask for it,” FWHS President Mary-Margaret Lemons said at the groundbreaking.

The HUD grant will be spread across six phases of development and is expected to leverage $345 million in investment for the neighborhood. In all, Fort Worth Housing Solutions will develop approximately 1,000 new units across the community. The City of Fort Worth plans additional infrastructure improvements, including a new community hub and aquatics center.

FWHS also received an additional $4 million from the federal government to assist with public infrastructure improvements related to Hughes House.

“We have dealt with redlining. We’ve dealt with environmental justice, anything that could be harmful, but we’re still here,” said Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens, whose district includes Stop Six. “And because of the partnership between the housing authority and the city of Fort Worth and the county and D.C., things are going to be better.”

Dr. Robin Hughes, Hughes’ daughter, delivered the closing remarks, sharing the gratitude of her family and a vision of the future for Stop Six.

“The greater good here is to build a sense of home,” she said. “We’re also hopeful that we all continue to keep our eyes on the prize and that’s community uplift and support.”

McCormack Baron Salazar of St. Louis, Mo., is the development partner for Hughes House and Block Companies, of Houston and Baton Rouge, is the general contractor.

The groundbreaking also included donations to See It Through Charities and Boys and Girls Club of America.

HUD Awards $5 Million in Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grants in Texas

By | Features, News, Press Releases, Stop Six CNI

HUD’s Signature Place-Based Program Continues to Invest in “Housing, People, and Neighborhoods” Nationwide

FORT WORTH – U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia L. Fudge today announced “Supplemental Grant” awards for Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grantees totaling more than $98 million. Fort Worth Housing Solutions and the City of Fort Worth’s Stop Six neighborhood was one of the grantees awarded $5 million. In addition, HUD is opening a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for $10 million to support local planning efforts.

“We’re thankful for the additional funds to continue the Choice Neighborhood revitalization in Stop Six,” Fort Worth Housing Solutions President Mary-Margaret Lemons said. “Rising interest rates and construction costs have made developments more challenging. We appreciate HUD recognizing those realities and providing further funding.”

The Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Transformation Plan was developed by residents, community leaders and stakeholders to capture a shared vision for a vibrant, safe and sustainable community with access to quality education, healthcare, services and amenities – a “neighborhood of choice.” The initiative was seeded by a $35 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Choice Neighborhoods Implementation grant awarded in April 2020.

“These funds are instrumental in creating a living community that we’ve called a ‘gateway to the west,’” said Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens, who serves District 5 including Stop Six. “We’re so proud to welcome our Cavile senior citizens back home with access to services and amenities in a modern housing environment. We’re so grateful to HUD for believing in this project and Stop Six.”

Choice Neighborhoods Implementation (CNI) Grants assist in redeveloping severely distressed HUD-assisted properties into mixed-income communities. The program has a three-pronged “Housing, People, and Neighborhood” approach that includes not only redevelopment of distressed properties, but also provides support to housing residents related to health, education, and income, while simultaneously investing in neighborhood improvement projects which promote economic development and private investment. Since the program’s inception, the Choice Neighborhoods program has seen 11,000 new mixed-income units built across 44 cities. More than 32,000 units are planned.

“When it comes to Choice Neighborhoods, HUD is an invested partner at the table,” said Secretary Fudge. “Cities and public housing authorities are working tirelessly to address affordable housing shortages despite pandemic-era construction cost increases. The additional Choice Neighborhoods funding represents HUD’s commitment to creating new housing for the communities that need it most. The Choice Neighborhoods approach is a comprehensive model that can be transformative for communities, and we invite more communities to consider tapping into it.”

“CNI is an amazing engine for housing and economic development for neighborhoods in the Southwest. Congratulations to Fort Worth Housing Solutions and the City of Fort Worth on receiving $5 million in CNI funding from HUD,” Candace Valenzuela, HUD Southwest Regional Administrator, said. “Choice Neighborhoods cultivates properties that provide safe homes with a focus on tenant services as well as robust neighborhood economic development.”
