It sounds like a handpicked few will benefit. I wonder when true "affordable housing" will actually happen for those in need.

Hmm. 10.3 million for 27 tiny apartments. Nearly $1,000 per square foot.

Somebody is playing with a different definition of "affordable" than I am used to.

400 square foot studios have a market rent of about $1300 a unit the affordable amount should be about $800. Who makes up the difference? We do need more affordable housing for the elderly as there is a shortage. Maybe some of that gas tax money for transit centers and BRE.

Did I read that right? $176,000 to relocate 6 households? 30 grand a family?
